Priebus Out, Kelly In as Trump's Chief of Staff

As I predicted yesterday, Reince Priebus's days as chief-of-staff were down to a precious few.  So, I was off, it wasn't days but a matter of hours.

But what may have ultimately doomed Priebus is the failure of congressional Republicans to repeal Obamacare.
