Jack Lew to OMB

Posted on

CREDIT:

Barack Obama is nominating Jack Lew, currently Deputy Secretary of State but formerly OMB Director, to be his new OMB Director. Obviously it doesn’t get much more qualified than a former OMB Director, and he’s very well-regarded but he has a kind of low-profile around town. I expect he’ll prove to be less of a public/media figure than Peter Orszag was.
