Chief of Staff Chosen

The first piece of the puzzle is in place:
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.
I made it clear to those who were reluctant to embrace Candidate Obama due to his lack of experience, that everything pointed to his ability to build a competent and qualified staff. His choice of Rep. Emanuel is proof of that.

I eagerly await his appointment of Governor Bill Richardson as Secretary of State *smile*
