There goes another Chief of Staff. Bill Daley, who has directed Obama's White House since January of 2011, handed in his resignation last week, senior administration officials tell The Chicago Tribune. Daley's stated reason is to spend more time in his hometown of Chicago.

Current budget director Jack Lew is set to take over the role at the end of the month.

Though the administration was heading into a tough election year, the sources say Daley wasn't pushed out and that his resignation caught the president by surprise. Daley replaced original chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, who left for a successful run at Chicago's mayorship.

Would it really be asking too much to get a Chief of Staff who didn't work at a bank?
