Who will become the next White House Social Secretary?

The New York Times reported yesterday that the current White House Social Secretary will be leaving the position soon to head to Chicago and head up the fundraising aspect of President Obama's 2012 reelection campaign.

From the New York Times:

In addition to Mr. Messina, aides said, the top leadership team of the re-election bid will include two deputy campaign managers: Julianna Smoot, the White House social secretary who was the finance director of the 2008 campaign, and Jennifer O’Malley Dillon, executive director of the Democratic National Committee, who directed the swing-state operation in 2008.

Juliana Smoot was just appointed to the position in late February when native Chicagoan and Obama friend Desiree Rogers stepped down. While the article doesn't specify when she will step down, I'm assuming it will be in the next couple of months. That then begs the question who will be the next White House Social Secretary.

Will it be an internal candidate? Will it be someone outside of the administration? I must say I will be waiting for this one!
