BUBBABAMA:

Biden to Center? Moderate Democrat Bruce Reed is New Chief of Staff (Tom Diemer, 1/15/11, Politics Daily)

Reed, who most recently worked as executive director of President Obama's deficit commission, succeeds longtime Biden loyalist Ron Klain, now bound for a job with former AOL Chairman Steve Case.

Reed has a deep resume. As a leading light for the centrist Democratic Leadership Council, and then domestic policy adviser to President Clinton, he was widely respected as an intellectual force behind the "New Democrat" movement -- a bid to move the party toward stronger stands on national defense issues and also more business friendly policies. With Clinton, he worked on landmark welfare reform legislation that ended the much-maligned Aid to Families With Dependent Children program.


How long until Hillary leaves State for the East Wing?
