News: Obama Keeps White House Chef

From the Associated Press;

Transition officials said Friday that Cristeta Comerford will stay on for the Obamas ... Michelle Obama said she and Comerford agree on 'the importance of healthy eating and healthy families.' ... Comerford is a naturalized U.S. citizen from the Philippines who studied French cooking in Vienna, Austria, and specializes in ethnic and American cuisine.

I always found all of the talk about who they "should" have gotten a bit on the odd side since the White House Chef has nothing (ok, maybe a little) to do with the policies of the sitting or incoming President.
