Monday, White House Chief of Staff (COS), Bill Daley, formally submitted his resignation to President Obama.
Daley who signed on as COS last year after now Mayor and former Congressman Ron Paul left DC to return to Chicago to enter the mayoral race. Daley submitted his resignation to President Obama last week but was encouraged to “think it over”. Well he did and he still wanted out.
It has been cited in the media that Daley could not handle the enormous pressure of Capitol Hill and during the final months of his tenure as COS, had special help from top White House Aides to assist him with projects.
President Obama spoke very highly of Daley’s work and stated that the two man are both in agreement on his successor. He will be replaced by current Budget Director Jack Lew. Lew will be Obama’s third COS before his first term is completed.
Do you think it’s happened by coincidence or could the COS stress be that great? Spill the beans…
