Robert Gibbs, One of Obama’s top aides during the campaign, has been named White House Press Secretary.

Also, more information about filling Obama’s seat for US Senate.

Much speculation has surrounded members of Illinois’ congressional delegation, including Reps. Jesse Jackson Jr., Danny Davis and Jan Schakowsky. Jackson and Schakowsky served as national co-chairs of Obama’s presidential campaign.

The three were among the people Blagojevich called “great candidates out there. This is what makes this so difficult,” he said.

Another name repeatedly brought up has been Tammy Duckworth, a disabled Iraq war veteran and 2006 failed congressional candidate. She became the governor’s veterans affairs director after losing her first political race.

UPDATE TO OBAM-UPDATE: David Axelrod, the Obama Campaign Chief Strategist, has just accepted the position of White House Senior Advisor.
