It appears that Barak Obama has offered the job of White House Chief of Staff to Rahm Emanuel. How interesting that the first name offered by our President elect who ran on the platform of hope and change is a veteran of the Clinton administration who has long been known to be Chicago mayor Richard Daley's eyes and ears in Washington, DC.
Emanuel is said to aspire to the position of Speaker of the House, so it is uncertain if he will be interested in a serving in the White House again. If he accepts, it may be good news for House Republicans who will have to form alliances with so called Blue Dog Democrats. Emanuel is arguably more competent that the other Democrats in House leadership positions.
