Emanuel Accepts Job as Obama Chief of Staff
By Chris Cillizza
Illinois Rep. Rahm Emanuel has, as expected, accepted the job as chief of staff to President-elect Barack Obama, according to informed Democratic sources.
Emanuel's hiring ensures that the candidate who ran against the Beltway will have a seasoned Washington hand as his top staffer.
Emanuel was elected to Congress in 2002 to a strongly Democratic Chicago-area seat once held by legendary Ways and Means Chairman Dan Rostenkowski. He rapidly rose through the ranks of the Democratic Caucus -- serving as the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in 2006 and then as the Caucus Chairman over the last two years.
