Will be the chief of staff to the eventual Vice President. She was fired by Clinton so the speculation is that Clinton will definitely not be the VP candidate.

Obama Hires Former Clinton Campaign Manager to Be VP Pick Aide - America’s Election HQ

Solis Doyle will become the chief of staff to the as-yet-to-be named vice presidential pick. She left the Clinton campaign after Clinton suffered unexpected defeats to Obama in the four contests Obama swept following his surprisingly strong showing on Super Tuesday. Clinton had expected to wrap up the nomination by that time, and Solis Doyle took the fall for the “inevitability” strategy that failed to get Clinton nominated.

He cant even choose a campaign manager on his own; he has to go and steal Clintons. Again, he has no backbone nor does he have any clue how to run a country.

Obama's brain trust (broken link)

Nearly all of them came together for the first time in Obama's successful campaign for the U.S. Senate in Illinois in 2004. But that contest hardly tested the candidate or his advisers the way the 2008 presidential campaign has. There was no incumbent from either party, and the Republicans, with no viable candidate, nominated a Marylander, former Republican presidential candidate Alan Keyes.

Still, the Obama campaign brain trust is, by most accounts, a top-notch team of Democratic political veterans, one that is well respected even in Republican circles.

"They are the dream team of political advisers: quick, competent and creative," said Frank Luntz, a longtime Republican strategist and pollster. "They are just as talented as their candidate. But unlike (Hillary Clinton's team), they're content to shine the spotlight on their client. Republicans should be jealous."

Ultimately, though, an organization is "really a reflection of the person at the top," said Chris Lehane, a veteran of the Bill Clinton and Al Gore presidential campaigns. "You can extrapolate an awful lot about how someone will govern by looking at the campaign they run, including how the staff works together."

But there's another big reason why Obama's victory is so important. He is riding herd on the largest and most potent new political organization anyone has seen on the American landscape in at least sixteen years. He's probably got anywhere from four to eight million email addresses on top of his 1.5 million donors and 800,000 registered users of my.barackobama.com, his social networking platform.

I like how half the people say that it's sucking up to Hillary and the other half say it's a diss. How about we make up our minds first, then start attacking him.

Or the third possibility... the campaign manager is just a really talented guy?
