Peter Mikami Rouse (born April 15, 1946) is an American political consultant. He was interim White House Chief of Staff to U.S. President Barack Obama from 2010 to 2011. Rouse spent many years on Capitol Hill, becoming known as the "101st senator"[1] during his tenure as Chief of Staff to Senate Democratic leader Tom Daschle.

After Daschle lost his election, Rouse later became Chief of Staff for then-Senator Obama.
