FIRST ON CNN: Cutter to leave White House for Obama campaign

Washington (CNN) – CNN has learned that Stephanie Cutter, deputy to White House senior adviser David Plouffe, and a veteran Democratic aide, will be leaving the West Wing to join the Obama re-election campaign, according to a source familiar with the move.

Cutter, who will serve as deputy campaign manager, will depart toward the end of the year, the source said.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Cutter served as one of Michelle Obama's key aides, then after the election became spokesperson for Barack Obama's transition team.

She later joined the administration and helped coordinate communication around health care reform.

Cutter also played a key role in Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor's confirmation process.

    What were her options... Director of Investor relations for Solyndra? Offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs? Travel agent for Iranian Border Hiking Tours?

    Of course, nothing is more important than getting re-elected to cause even more gov't waste and fraud to occur. What happened to the new era of fiscal responsibility that Obama promised?
