VP chief of staff

The Time blog covers recent Obama campaign staff additions:

In a move bound to reignite speculation that Hillary might be offered the vice presidential slot, the Obama campaign announced that none other than Patti Solis Doyle, Clinton’s former campaign manager, would be ‘chief of staff to the vice presidential nominee.’

Patti Solis Doyle had stepped down from Hillary’s campaign in February in the middle of a series of losses which gave Obama a strong pledged delegate lead. Reaction seems mixed whether Doyle joining the Obama campaign indicates that Hillary is more or less likely to be asked to be the ticket. If you support a joint ticket, why not post a comment on the Time blog to make your voice heard.
