Daley chosen for Chief of Staff

Washington (CNN) - President Obama will name former Clinton Commerce Secretary William Daley his new chief of staff, according to three senior administration officials, as a dramatic reshuffling of the White House staff kicks into high gear.

The officials said Obama will also elevate interim chief of staff Pete Rouse, who had been serving as a senior adviser before replacing Rahm Emanuel on a temporary basis, to the role of counselor to the president. Obama himself will make the announcements official at 2:30pm ET in the East Room at the White House.
