President Obama has named a new top White House lawyer, the third of his two-and-a-half-year tenure.
New White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler will replace Bob Bauer, who is returning to private practice -- including service as general counsel to the president's 2012 re-election campaign and as Obama's personal lawyer.
...Ruemmler is already working at the White House as principal deputy counsel to the president. She officially becomes White House counsel at the end of June.
...Washington attorney Greg Craig served as Obama's first White House counsel, but resigned after a year amid controversy over failed efforts to close the terrorism prison facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
What is going on in the Obama White House that has counsel playing musical chairs?
Though it does look like Ruemmler's released her college transcripts. So she's got that going for her.
