Obama staff shakeup may come as early as Friday

President Obama wants to move quickly on naming the next full-time White House chief of staff, according to two senior Democratic sources close to the process.

The president has narrowed the list down to a two-man race between current interim boss Pete Rouse and former Clinton Commerce Secretary William Daley, said the sources, who noted a slew of staff moves could be announced as early as Friday.

    He definitely captivated the minds of the American populace. But as for following through? It seems he talked to big of a game. The american people should be paying more attention to congress anyways.

      Has anyone noticed the Obama backers have very poor punctuation and grammatical skills? Don't think its a coincidence.

    The president spends 0 dollars on anything. You all are thinking about congress. And a president is no different from the one before him, or the one who comes after him.

    Agreed! The President can only do what his Congress will let him do...

    I always find it somewhat amusing when people get all up in arms and call the President (whomever it may be at the time) a liar for not fulfilling his campaign "promises". I have yet to see ANY Congress of ANY sitting President fulfill ALL of said promises! And, I don't foresee it in my lifetime, either. So, what's the answer? I don't know...

      this is very simple..together we rise... get rid on this Dem and Rep. thing and we the people will have a chance to take down what we have built that IS destroying us all and making us the laughing stock of the world.. The people we should have making our laws should be those who live among us not those who will never rely on the very laws.. or those who will never rely on the system to live.. We have done this to ourselves people...we the people need to do away with h
      what has set us back.... We do have the greatest country in the world and the people we elect to run it use it as a piggy bank....NUFF SAID!!!

    They should really just make the president only allowed to dress as a Washington Redskins cheerleader. It would fit his job description better. And Sherri, I'm talking about all presidents, not just SuperObama.

    Actually, judging from the posts on this thread, it seems the Obama haters have the grammatical skills of a four-year-old. I don't think folks who refer to the former President as "Dubya" should be commenting on anyone's skill with the written word!

    My party has all the answers! I'm a tool. Bush left with a $800 billion bail out and roughly $100 billion debt from both wars. Obama came in and added another $800 billion in bail outs and there's probably more deficit spending going on. Congress allowed this to happen. Any of you who can prove otherwise should do so by posting facts with links to support your position. We need a viable 3rd party to emerge complete with their own primary.
