William Daley, Brought in as Chief of Staff to be the "Adult In the Room," the Guy Who Was Friendly To Business and Had a Clue About How The World Works, is now... Resigning

So... no adult in the room again, huh?

No, of course not. Just like last time Obama had a new Chief of Staff, this time, too, it's a great trade-up (according to the media), giving him all these new tools for his toolbox.

And the great tools Daley supposedly was bringing -- adult in the room, knows business, knows how the world operates?

Yeah. Those tools suck. Not even worth mentioning as Daley exits (but boy how they were mentioned when he entered).

It's these new tools that are super-awesome.

As I keep saying, Obama moves from triumph to triumph.

Obama plans to announce the change in leadership in a public event Monday afternoon. The official shift will take place at the end of the month, giving Lew time to complete the administration’s budget proposal while Daley leads the team through the crafting of the State of the Union address due in two weeks.

The choice of Lew puts a veteran staffer of the White House, Capitol Hill and State Department in a critical position at a difficult time for the president. Obama hopes he can work through tough budget and economic issues with Congress this year despite fierce opposition from Republicans in the GOP-led House. Having a strong team captain who can deal with lawmakers, staffers and business leaders is considered crucial to their strategy.
