WASHINGTON (AP) - President-elect Barack Obama is putting some
longtime aides in senior posts at his White House.
Obama named four new members of his West Wing staff Wednesday.
That include a senior adviser job for his chief campaign
strategist, David Axelrod.
He also announced Greg Craig as White House counsel. Craig was
President Bill Clinton's lawyer during his impeachment.
Chris Lu will be Cabinet secretary, the White House liaison to
the Cabinet and government agencies. And Lisa Brown, a lawyer who
served as former Vice President Al Gore's counsel, will be staff
secretary.
