No, he's not going to dress it up in fancy colors or include a picture of Kim Kardashian. He's going to sign his name. That's what Treasury secretaries get to do -- they slap their signature on our currency. Typically, that's not such a big deal. Quiz: How well do you remember 2012? In Lew's case, though, it's noteworthy.

Chicagoan Bill Daley is stepping down as White House chief of staff, making way for budget director Jack Lew to take over the president's team as it heads into a tough election year. President Obama told reporters this afternoon that Daley's resignation was “not easy news to hear” and that he didn't accept the decision right away. “I asked him to take a couple of days,” Obama said, adding that “the pull of the hometown we both love” ultimately won out. The shift from Daley to Lew will take place at the end of this month.

White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew said Sunday that President Obama had found the “right balance” in mandating birth control coverage while protecting religious liberty, and he said the administration would now press ahead to adopt a final rule requiring health insurers to make contraceptives available to all policyholders at no cost. This is “the right policy” and a “very good resolution” of the dispute that had flared between Catholic leaders and the White House, Lew said in a series of appearances on the Sunday talk shows.  “We didn't expect there would be universal acceptance” of the compromise announced Friday, but a “broad range of groups” had applauded Obama's plan, he said.
