CBO director Peter Orszag is the likely choice to head the Office of Management and Budget.

The National Journal is reporting that President-elect Barack Obama will name Congressional Budget Office director Peter Orszag as director of the Office of Management and Budget.

The OMB director will play a crucial role in the Obama administration, which inherits a $10 billion national debt and an annual deficit approaching $1 trillion. He will also be responsible for putting together Obama’s 2010 budget — and trying to push the 2009 budget through Congress before the current continuing resolution ends on March 6.

Orszag has been at CBO for about two years; he was an economic adviser to Bill Clinton during his administration.
