(AP Photo/Evan Vucci) (Newser) – That big shakeup that's going to change the face of President Obama's Cabinet? Not happening, Robert Gibbs tells State of the Union today. "I don't expect, quite honestly, big changes," he said. The exception to that rule is Larry Summers' replacement, whom Gibbs expects to see named in early or mid-January, notes Politico: "I think, obviously, it's an important part of our economic team. And the president wants to take some time to make a good decision."
