An article by Alexis Simendinger in the National Journal says Obama will name Peter Orszag as Budget Director.

Orszag, currently Congressional Budget Office Director and a former economic adviser to Bill Clinton, will take on this important Cabinet post as Obama faces the $700 Billion mess he inherits from Bush.

Orszag is seen as an impressive, 40-year-old analyst with expertise in health care policy, Social Security, pensions, and global climate change.

He is not expected to have a problem in Senate confirmation.
