Politico:

As I first reported a couple of weeks ago, former Clinton campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle is going to work for Obama.

She’ll be “chief of staff to the vice presidential candidate – whoever he (or she) will be, campaign officials said,” Nagourney reports.

Though this will stir speculation that she’s paving the way for Hillary, but it actually makes me think the opposite. Clinton fired her in February, and many of her backers view Solis Doyle as a bit of a traitor for having signaled that she’d move to Obama before the primary was over.

But she adds a prominent female, Hispanic face to Obama’s senior staff, and has a major role, if an ambiguous one: It’s not exactly inside the Obama inner circle, and a running mate may also want to bring in his or her own people.
