Things have moved quite quickly for this General. And the timing is just right.
First, he takes Gen. McChrystal's job over b/s circumstances, now he's . of the C.I.A
shortly after Usama Bin Landen is killed. Seems to me like he is being rewarded for keeping secrets.
For all who are not in the know of this, Here are a couple of links to articles I quickly dug up.

Chosen One? I don't think so. I saw somewhere else that he didn't even want the job.

General Patreaus is going to get commended and pushed aside. There were alot of "I"s in Obamas speech. Its gonna be an Obama hero fest and no ones gonna care about anyone else. Just in time to convince the people he brings change....excuse me while I barf.

You have to admit that this gives him more power and funding.
I humbly ask you for a source to you claim. Not trying to be a d73k,
(since this thread is speculative)
but a quote would help.

I'm not trying to troll, but I can't find where I may have seen it.

Leon Panetta is being moved to Defense Secretary - that is HIS reward.
Patreus has to take over the CIA. He's ambitious as all get out, and, IMO, a bit dangerous because of it.
