President Obama's chief of staff, Bill Daley, has announced his future plans to leave his position, while vice president Joe Biden has said that he will stick around if the president gets elected to a second term.
Absolutely, positively, yes, Biden said on the Today show. There's never been any question about that.
The president's made that clear, he said. Hardly anybody has raised that anymore.
Daley, on the other hand, said he will leave his job at the end of the president's current term. He is sure that Obama will be reelected.
I made a commitment to the president through his re-election, which I'm confident he will do, and then my wife and I will return to Chicago, Daley said in an interview with a WMAQ-TV, Reuters reported.
Daley denied wanting to run for mayor in his native Chicago.
All I'm trying to do is get through day to day, he said, Reuters reported. I have no plans.
