Denis McDonough / Cliff Owen, AP

President Obama has yet to name his new chief of staff, but there is a strong favorite.

Long-time Obama aide Denis McDonough is likely to be elevated to the post, according to news reports, though White House officials caution that the president has not made a final decision.

McDonough, 43, foreign policy adviser to Obama during his 2008 presidential campaign, currently serves as deputy national security adviser.

He could replace outgoing chief of staff Jack Lew, whom Obama nominated to be Treasury secretary.
