National Security Adviser Tom Donilon announced his resignation today-- Donilon has been with the administration since day 1, serving first as Deputy National Security Adviser. Senior officials tell Fox News that Donilon's wife recently took a new job that involves a lot of foreign travel and he has decided to make a change and spend more time with his family.
President Obama announced shortly after that UN Ambassador Susan Rice will replace Donilon-- a note that the post does not require Senate confirmation. Rice had been considered for Secretary of State following Hillary Clinton's departure, but withdrew from consideration amid fallout following the Benghazi attacks.
Samantha Power, former aide to President Obama, will succeed Amb. Rice . Power was an aide on President Obama's '08 campaign, but stepped down following comments she made calling then Senator Hillary Clinton a "monster."
