    White House Chief of Staff William Daley will quit his post

    White House Chief of Staff William Daley will quit his post this afternoon less than a year after taking the job, sources said, shaking up the White House management as President Obama gears up for his reelection.
    Daley, 63, will be replaced by Budget Director Jacob Lew, the sources added. The president is expected to address the changes in a public statement at 3 p.m.

    I'm no fan of Obama but the comings and goings are pretty common. He's probably been offered a plum position with Goldman Sachs.

    Heh, heh, I like the dig about GS, but really? Anything else we tear down to the smallest semantic of a word, gesture, thought. Now, we should all just say 'eh, no big deal' when the Presidents CoS quits right at the start of the campaign?

    Smell test? = something fishy.

    Daley had already been demoted a while back; he retained the title of Chief of Staff but not much of the actual substance. I suspect no one really wants to stay under those circumstances.

    Daley expressed his desire to return to Chicago, which is the same thing Emanuel did.

    Oh. So why the demotion? Not the disingenuous, hack that Rham was?

    I hope this isn't true or that she didn't actually use these words.

    WASHINGTON-- When Michelle Obama worked in Mayor Daley's City Hall in the early 1990s, she was "distressed" by how a small group of "white Irish Catholic" families -- the Daleys, the Hynes and the Madigans -- "locked up" power in Illinois.

    No. It's a clear sign that Daley's wife refused to move to Washington, DC away from her children and grandchildren. I respect him for that, actually.
