Rahm?

The choice of Rahm Emanuel as Obama's chief of staff, if true, is somewhat dissonant and surprising. No drama? With this choice, Obama will certainly take a hit with the chatterers -- what happened to being post-partisan, etc. -- but that is a very minor, very temporary problem.

What I think this signals is an intention to be very aggressive in pursuing a legislative agenda. Rahm knows every single House member and seems to know how to get them to do what he wants.

Rahm is the Tom Delay of the left. I love him.
