William Daley has been chosen by President Obama to serve as his new chief of staff, a senior administration official said Thursday morning. Daley, the former Commerce secretary under Bill Clinton, will take over from Pete Rouse, who has been serving as interim chief of staff.

WASHINGTON - A year after his reelection triumph, President Obama is facing an awkward question from friends and foes alike: Why can't he run the government as well as he ran his campaign? What with the IRS targeting of tea party groups; the poor security at the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya; the eavesdropping on close allies; and the botched rollout of the landmark healthcare law, Obama increasingly seems to be battling top-level management failures as much as policy or political problems.

He was hired by President Obama at a moment when White House relations with the business community were bad and getting worse. The hope was that William Daley, who had held high-level positions in the corporate world, had the bona fides to reassure a business community that liked neither the rhetoric nor the regulations coming from the Obama administration. So, how is all that working out? Daley was asked Wednesday, during an appearance at the Washington Ideas Forum. "It's going great," he said.

Born into a legendary political dynasty, William M. Daley has been a lifelong insider--son of a famous Chicago mayor, brother of that city's current leader and, since January, a member of President Bill Clinton's Cabinet. "I think it helps," the secretary of commerce said of the years of contacts he established as a political advisor, lawyer, lobbyist, banker and fund-raiser.

Washington's two new power players ? the speaker of the House and the White House chief of staff ? came out clashing Sunday on how to best deal with the rising government debt and proposed federal spending cuts. Speaker John A. Boehner urged the White House to join with Republicans in the next two weeks and agree to major cuts that would lower spending to pre-Obama administration levels in 2008. Without compromise, Boehner warned, the government will once again have to raise its debt limit.

As White House Chief of Staff William Daley adjourned a recent morning meeting, a senior staff member whispered a question to another as they left the office: "Is that what it's like in a boardroom?" It's both a compliment and a criticism White House staffers have offered about Daley's detached management style — he prefers to operate at "30,000 feet," as one senior administration official put it — since he left the corporate world and returned to Washington to run President Obama's team 10 months ago. This week, President Obama appeared to acknowledge that method wasn't working.

WASHINGTON -- President Obama's top aide, William Daley, signaled in an interview Sunday that the U.S. did not want to steer events in Egypt but, rather, hoped the Egyptian people would come up with a solution to the standoff between President Hosni Mubarak and protesters who want him ousted. Daley, in his first interview since he was named White House chief of staff on Jan. 6, told CBS' "Face the Nation" that the White House supported "basic human rights of the people of Egypt. " Obama has urged his Egyptian counterpart that the government needs to show "restraint" toward protesters massed on city streets demanding Mubarak's ouster, Daley said.

William Daley was born with one of the most fortunate family names in Democratic politics. But life has not been one long lucky streak for the man who, for instance, chaired Al Gore's failed presidential campaign in 2000. Still, when President Obama chose the youngest son of Chicago's legendary mayoral dynasty as his new chief of staff Thursday, he picked someone known as an achiever in politics, government and business. Daley is a "steady-as-you-go" executive who brings practical experience to a White House that needs it, said Sam Skinner, who was a chief of staff to President George H.W. Bush and who has known Daley for years.
