Gibbs, Obama spokesman and adviser, quitting job

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is expected to decide in the next few days who his new White House chief of staff will be. Rahm Emanuel left three months ago to run for Chicago mayor, and the respected and below-the-radar Pete Rouse has been interim chief.

Obama met yesterday with former Commerce Secretary William Daley, who's up for the job if Rouse doesn't want to serve another two years.

Senior adviser David Axelrod is also heading for the door, and Press Secretary Robert Gibbs announced yesterday that he's resigning, saying,"It's a good time to get some fresh voices, including somebody up here."
