No final decision has been made as of yet, but top Democrats expect that Daley will become the new chief of staff, with Rouse returning to his former position as a senior adviser.

This Friday, President Obama is expected to name Treasury Department official Gene Sperling to be his director of the National Economic Council.  Sperling previously served in that role from 1997 to 2001.

President Obama will also name some other economic staffers at the Friday event, including Ron Bloom, who worked on the auto bailouts and restructuring and will now assume a broader portfolio focusing on manufacturing in general.
