White House Lawyer Neil Eggleston Looks Exactly Like You’d Expect

The six-month-old puppy is a gift from Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-MA) who owns several Portuguese water dogs himself. This breed of dog is considered a good pet for children who have allergies, as Malia does. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)   

White House chief counsel Neil Eggleston has a name that’s so perfect for him you could scream.

As Talking Points Memo puts it so aptly in a story this morning, “Lawyer Neil Eggleston could be looking toward a comfortable retirement on the generous nest egg he built through high-stakes representation of prominent Washington officials and corporate clients. Instead, he’s returning to a grueling post at a White House under siege on multiple legal fronts.”

Seriously, nest egg?

With President Obama dealing with a lot of crap from all angles, including a lawsuit from House Speaker John Boehner, he needs the biggest egghead (literally) in town. And – no joke – he’s found him.
