That's two in a row now:
Christina Romer, an economic advisor to President Obama, announced her resignation Thursday night, the second top White House economic official to step down.
Romer, head of the Council of Economic Advisors, said she would leave Sept. 3 and return to her job as an economics professor at UC Berkeley.
Romer had clashed with Obama's top economic advisor, Lawrence Summers, over her access to the president, though administration officials said she was not leaving because of any personality conflict or policy differences.
In a statement released by the White House, Obama said Romer had made it clear early on that she wanted to return to Northern California, where her son is to begin high school in the fall.
