Bill Daley, brother of outgoing Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, has been chosen as White House chief of staff; President Obama will formally announce the move this afternoon. Interim chief of staff Pete Rouse, who many thought would be made permanent CoS, is instead being given the new title “counselor to the president.”
And former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is, of course, running for mayor of Chicago. Did the President of the United States just use the White House as a patronage vehicle to secure the Daley machine’s support for Emanuel’s bid? I think he might have!
