WASHINGTON White House chief of staff William Daley has told President Barack Obama he will stay until after the 2012 re-election campaign but then wants to go home to Chicago, a senior administration official said today.
Daley, formerly an executive at JPMorgan Chase, became Obamas top aide in January. He is the brother and son of former Chicago mayors.
Daleys plans were first reported Monday by Mary Ann Ahern of WMAQ-Channel 5 in Chicago. The chief of staff said: I made a commitment to the president through his re-election, which Im confident he will do, and then my wife and I will be back in Chicago."
The election is Nov. 6, 2012.
Daley spoke last week to Norah ODonnell, chief White House correspondent for CBS News, who interviewed Daley last week at a panel discussion at the Newseum.
She said that when he was brought into the White House, there was discussion that he would strengthen ties with Capitol Hill and the business community and asked: Hows that going?

Well it certainly can’t be because he misses the Chicago thuggery in the District of Corruption.
when President Cain kicks him out ???
I made a commitment to the president through his re-election, which Im confident he will do, and then my wife and I will be back in Chicago.”
I think what he meant to say was, I made a commitment to the president through his re-election, which Im confident he will do, and then my wife and I are headed for the hills after stocking up on several months worth of food and water.”
And where will you and the lil missus go if Obama is not re-elected, Mr Daly?
Might as well leave now ‘cause it ain’t happenin’
I am sure the real, tough questions were asked, too.
Nothing to see here folks.
Just another (democ)rat leaving a sinking ship.
Well, he got it half right. HE will be LEAVING the White House.
He can leave now if he likes . No one will miss him.
Your much too kind...OBlahblah / Liberalism, Will be defeat....
..so he'll be leaving, KICKED-OUT on his a$$.
Yes, the looting of the country should just about be finished by then DemDaley. Go home and prepare for prison.
How convenient because you won’t have a job in the White House after the election
In other words, he is quitting January of 2013 (or earlier) regardless. Now isn’t that easier?
Actually, Bill Daley was one of the more rational members of Obama’s advisors, the only one with any business experience, and was, get this, considered too conservative amongst Obama’s other advisors. Supposedly, Daley and Valerie Jarrett locked horns behind the scenes, frequently. Bill Daley was outnumbered by the socialist idealogues that surround Obama. So he’s splitting. His voice wasn’t being heard or just ignored, so he’s getting the heck out ASAP.
You beat me to it. I doubt Daly is on Cain's short list for staff.
He will be leaving even faster after the 0bama total failure defeat.
