 More on Chief Staff Executives’ Roles   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Staff’s role is to "enable all of the elected leaders to exercise that leadership."
In fact, I would also argue that the staff has an obligation as strong as the elected leadership to act in the interests of the institution not merely the interests of the staff.
So, in addition to executing the responsibilities delegated to the staff, the chief staff executive can, and I believe must, vigorously exercise his or her role as advisor to the leadership on any matter of policy in which they perceive themselves to be competent.

 New Chief of Staff. -- November 8, 1996
Oftentimes, you have chiefs of staff who want to be figures on their own, such as Donald Regan under Reagan and John Sununu perhaps under George Bush, people who in some cases would not take the blame away from the President.
If it is well known and widely understood that the chief of staff has the confidence and the trust and the ear of the President, then it’s much harder for anybody to make end runs around the White House chief of staff.
One of the most important responsibilities that the chief of staff has is to balance protecting the President against unnecessary and irrelevant, immaterial, unnecessary information, while, on the other hand, making sure that he gets the information and the points of view and the perspectives that he needs in a very free-flowing way.
