I PREDICTED THIS IN A YEAR AGO:
President Barack Obama is considering naming William Daley, a JPMorgan Chase & Co. executive and former U.S. Commerce secretary, to a high-level White House post, possibly as his chief of staff, people familiar with the matter said.
Such a move, which is still under discussion and which White House officials wouldn’t confirm, would bring a Washington veteran and someone with strong business ties into the administration as Obama enters the second half of his term. The president is faced with a Republican majority in the House of Representatives and is trying to accelerate the U.S. economic recovery while addressing the budget deficit.
Daley, 62, who typically responds to questions, didn’t return two messages seeking comment left on his cell phone yesterday or a phone call to his office and an e-mail sent to him today. White House officials declined to discuss the matter.
I THINK HOLDER WILL SOON BE GONE - AND SO WILL NAPPIE. KAGAN HAS A BETTER GIG, SO I THINK OBAMA WILL PICK HIS CHIEF LEGAL COUNSEL BAUER.

WHICH OF OBAMA'S APPOINTEES WILL BE THROWN UNDER THE BUS - AND WHO WILL REPLACE THEM?Between now and the impending Tea Party and GOP victories in November, who do you think Obama will throw under the bus?
Glenn links to a post at COMMENTARY arguing that Holder is the next to go.
This is probable.
But who will Obama and Axelrod and Soros and the SEIU replace him with?
Here's who I think is gonna get thrown under the bus between now and the end of the year - and who I think will replace them --- and who I think SHOULD replace them if Obama wasn't a radical leftist but a shrewd liberal politician like the Clinton's:
OUT - OBAMA/AXELROD/SEIU/SOROS PICK - - - MY PICK
HOLDER - - - - - ELENA KAGAN - - - MARY JO WHITE
NAPOLITANO - GRANHOLM OR RICHARDSON -COLIN POWELL
EMANUEL -PODESTA & BILL DALEY - SAM NUNN & RENDELL
