I’m surprised he’d consider picking another white guy after the heat he’s been getting from the lib “diversity” police. I hope he picks McDonough, the lefty meltdown will be entertaining to watch.

Via The Hill:

President Obama is leaning toward choosing Denis McDonough, currently a deputy national security adviser, as his next chief of staff, sources told Bloomberg.

McDonough, who worked on Obama’s 2008 campaign, is considered deeply loyal to the president. He was a longtime congressional aide who worked for Obama when he was a freshman senator. McDonough also served as foreign policy adviser to then-Senate Democratic Leader Tom Daschle (S.D.) and legislative director to then-Sen. Ken Salazar (D-Colo.), who is now the secretary of the Interior.

He also worked as a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress [who own Media Matters – ed.], a liberal think tank, and joined the National Security Council in 2009.

Another leading candidate is Ron Klain [also a white guy -.ed], former chief of staff to Vice President Joe Biden.
