“Always change a losing game” goes an old saw in the sports world. President Barack Obama is taking that idea to heart, Politico reports
. After the serious pasting Democrats absorbed in the mid-term elections, he’s planning a significant staff shakeup for next year.
“David Plouffe, Obama’s 2008 campaign manager, (pictured)
who will become a senior adviser to the president as early as the first week of January, is perhaps the most significant addition to Obama’s staff. He is expected to take an expansive new role including running the embattled White House press and messaging operations,” the news service states.
“White House staffers hope the organization-minded Plouffe — combined with the steadying hand of interim chief of staff Pete Rouse — will professionalize an improvisational and, at times, chaotic organizational chart centered on former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, a domineering figure during the administration’s first two years.”
