The White House

With the flap over his expensive travel habits just a bad memory, White House Chief of Staff John H. Sununu seems to be safe in his job. But don't look for him to be back in a second Bush Administration. Sununu has told the President he wants out after the reelection campaign. Associates say the former New Hampshire governor is interested in becoming a university president or dean. That may be because while Sununu's position is secure, his stature within the Administration is diminished. Bush turns more to pollster Robert M. Teeter, Commerce Secretary Robert A. Mosbacher, and Treasury Secretary Nicholas F. Brady for political advice. Sununu still manages the President's schedule, but keeps a low profile.
