FILE - This Jan. 25, 2013, file photo shows President Barack Obama, with then-current White House Chief of Staff Jacob Lew, right, announces that he will name Denis McDonough, left, as his next chief of staff, in the East Room of the White House in Washington. McDonough is trying to manage one of the roughest patches in Obama's presidency as the White House labors to explain how the president got blindsided by the disastrous enrollment launch of his health care law. Some Democrats wonder how the president did not see the trouble coming. As the president's gatekeeper, McDonough is at the center of the maelstrom, the man charged with deciding what the president needs to know and when.(AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster, File)
