Today, US President Barack Obama is going to announce further changes to his White House team. Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is going to step down to run for mayor of Chicago. The President is expected to announce long term staff member Peter Rouseas the interim replacement.
Going back to my Big 15 from August, this is part of #6 “The turning over of the current White House economic team.” To me, this means that the WH house cleaning is almost done for those responsible for his falling poll numbers and ineffective economic policy. The last possible shoe to drop would be US Treasury Secretary Geithner with the markets looking for someone to be brought in from the private sector.
