Solis Doyle Joins Obama Campaign
Former Hillary Clinton Campaign Manager Patti Solis Doyle has joined the Obama campaign.
She will be the Chief of Staff to Obama's as yet unnamed running mate.
Anyone want to read the tea leaves on that one?
Michelle Obama is getting an image-booster:
In addition, the campaign has hired Democratic strategist Stephanie Cutter to work as chief of staff for Michelle Obama. Her first order of business will be to buff and polish the image of the candidate's wife, who has been the target of sharp attacks in recent weeks.
More staff changes below:
Jen O'Malley Dillon, who formerly served as Iowa state director for John Edwards, will direct the campaign in the battleground states.
Temo Figueroa, who was Obama's national field director, will run the effort to reach Latino voters.
Mike Strautmanis, the legislative director in Obama's Senate office, is now officially a "senior advisor."

Update: Keep in mind Solis Doyle and Axlerod have been friends for 20 years. She got her start in Chicago politics:
David Axelrod, Obama's top strategist, said he has talked to Solis Doyle throughout the campaign, as he has with Clinton's communications director Howard Wolfson. She is a Chicago native and sister of Ald. Danny Solis (25th).
"She's been great friend of mine for 20 years," Axelrod said. "I talked to her throughout the campaign, as I have with Howard and others. She said she would be happy to help if we are the nominee, and I said that would be great. Period. End of non-story."
