"I think that we certainly are looking for some new faces. Larry Summers left, Rahm left, there will probably be some new faces," Jarrett tells MSNBC.

"I think, as in any administration, after a couple of years for a variety of reasons, people move on and there's an opportunity to bring some new people in. And I think the president is interested in doing that," Jarrett said. "He's always interested in hearing outside voices."
