The Hill reports:
The Obama band is breaking up.
Now that a second term has been secured, President Obama is set to lose several key members of his famously close-knit inner circle.
David Plouffe, a senior adviser in the White House, is expected to depart the halls of the West Wing in the coming months, sources say.
David Axelrod, the senior strategist on the Obama campaign and the political adviser closest to the president on a personal level, will be largely focused on the creation of a new politics institute at the University of Chicago.
