SHARE Bill Daley likely to co-chair Inauguration Committee

WASHINGTON–The Obama team will start announcing details about the Jan. 20 inauguration in the upcoming days. I hear Bill Daley is likely to be one of the Inauguration Committee co-chairs. Daley, the former Commerce Secretary, is also a part of the Obama transition team.

The Obama crew will need to raise millions of dollars to bankroll the festivities. I hear the goal is to strike a balance in the celebration–not over the top opulent because of the horrible economy–but some decent parties to show the world the U.S. is not in a depression. Watch for major Obama presidential campaign bundlers to swing into action to raise inauguration cash.
