Trump Sets Up Two-Headed WH Monster

The NY Times is reporting that Donald Trump has selected Reince Priebus as Chief of Staff, and also chose Stephen Bannon as Strategist.
Having a two-headed monster running White House operations is probably not a great idea. To me, that sounds like a recipe for infighting and power struggles.
It reminds me of the Nixon White House, where a very small group of people controlled all of the power around the president, and those few individuals constantly maneuvered against each other to gain Nixon's favor.
I'm not saying this administration will be that disastrous, just that I wish Trump had chosen one Chief of Staff and left it at that.
