This week, politics has been all about personnel changes. 

President Obama announced his new Chief of Staff, as Press Secretary Robert Gibbs announced he was stepping down.

The change in Oregon’s governorship officially happens next week, with John Kitzhaber taking the oath of office, and he announced key members of his team yesterday. 

There is also a transition in progress among Oregon Republicans, as Bob Tiernan steps down as state party chair. 

Not to worry, our political guys are still on the job.  It’s our weekly political chat with Bill Lunch, OPB’s Political Analyst.  He’s at the OSU Media Center.  And Jeff Mapes is the senior political reporter for The Oregonian; he’s on the line.
