More Obama Staff: Rumors Confirmed, Debunked

Obama
announced more White House appointments today, some of which come as no
surprise. As leaked reports had indicated, David Axelrod, Obama's chief campaign
strategist, will be a senior adviser, and Gregory Craig will be White House
counsel. Lisa Brown, former counsel to vice president Al Gore, will be staff
secretary. Chris Lu, executive director of the transition, will be Cabinet
secretary, a position that Patti Solis Doyle reportedly was approached about a
few weeks ago.

UPDATE: Why was the Solis Doyle rumor floated? Because she was Rahm Emanuel's pick.
