Rahm Emanuel Offered Role of Obama's Chief of Staff

Rahm Emanuel Offered Role of Obama's Chief of Staff

Soon after Barack Obama was elected last night, names started floating around regarding his cabinet. His first order of business was finding a chief of staff. This morning, Obama offered the job to Rahm Emanuel, a Democratic Representative from Illinois. Early this afternoon his office denied reports he accepted.

Emanuel has been a member of Congress since 2003, when he was elected to represent Illinois's 5th congressional district. He was also a senior advisor to Bill Clinton at the White House from 1993 to 1998. We'll be hearing a lot more about him as the rest of the cabinet news unfolds and Barack Obama assembles his White House team.

The AP is reporting he has now accepted the job: I hope it's real this time :-) Also Robert Gibbs will be the White House Press Secretary:

I love you Em. He has done great things. People should do a little research. He is not bad to look at in the least. Now, I feel dirty.

Um, as I've stated, he HAS done great things for Chicago, and some of us DO know about those things and appreciate what he has done. He's incredibly well-respected here and really got in touch with a lot of people during his campaign, even going to train stations to greet people and shake hands, and he also has an incredibly loyal staff behind him. He just also happens to be attractive as well, and after four years of some rather, um, 'interesting-looking' folks in the White House (Rummy? Rove?), I think a little eye candy ain't gonna hurt anyone.

My first thought was, "Wow he's good looking! This is going to be one attractive administration." Then I saw a lot of you also posted that, so I don't feel that embarassed :D His attractiveness is all I have to judge him by right now, but I'm going to go educate myself. Wikipedia, here I come... (yes, I said Wikipedia)

Jessie: ;) She's pretty but not really my cup of tea. My girl crush is Kate Moennig. I love her whole androgynous look. plus_2_kid: I love Biden MORE.

i think that if he was good enough for clinton at one point, then he's good enough now, assuming that he still retains the same values that he had and helps the party gain strength

Ladies you should be ashamed..... remember that while Reggie Love is not part of the cabinet, he will still be in the picture walking along side Obama down those steps.

That GQ comment has me fantasizing a slow motion scene where Obama, Biden, and Emanuel walk down the White House steps... coats billowing in the autumn air... I'm making myself blush.

I definitely support the recruiting of women (read: hot milfs in pencil skirts and pumps) to his cabinet.
