Cabinet Shuffle Sheds Light on Obama Plans

"On the surface, the game of musical chairs being played this week in President Obama's Cabinet seems intended to elevate the star of San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro, who is being nominated to lead the Department of Housing and Urban Development and is seen as a potential vice-presidential candidate in 2016 or beyond," the Washington Post reports.

"But it also involves a set of decisions that sheds light on Obama's thinking about his team heading into the final two years of his administration."

"HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan, rather than leaving the administration after six years, now seems destined to stay for the duration as he moves into the job of Office of Management and Budget director... The moves seem to be largely about bringing Donovan into Obama's inner circle."
