Bill Daley Joins CBS News as a Contributor

DaleyCBSFormer Obama White House chief of staff Bill Daley is joining CBS News as a contributor.

Daley ruled out a run for Illinois governor last month. His father and brother were both longtime mayors of Chicago.

Prior to his role in the Obama White House, Daley was a Vice Chairman of JPMorgan Chase and before that was president of SBC Communications.
