But he isn't going far.
With election time looming, a few changes are being made to President Obama's administration - changes that some may want to pay attention to.
The President announced today that White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley has decided to step down from his post and will be replaced by Office of Management and Budget Director Jack Lew. According to the President, Daley came to him last week to put in his resignation, citing the desire to spend more time with his family and recommending Lew as his successor. Hence the impromptu announcement and the sudden change in the line-up.
But what we found interesting is that this man, who has served as a senior adviser to the president for the past vital year of his administration, isn't going too far at all. According to Obama's aids, Daley will stay in his job through January and the will being serving as one of the co-chairs for Obama's re-election campaign.
Hmm. We find that very inneresting, don't you? Wonder who will be joining Daley in this new post? Do we detect some strategy here? Some scheming maybe? Maybe we'll reserve all assumptions until after his State of The Union address.
