Emanuel May Be Formally Announced As Chief of Staff As Early As This Afternoon

Rahm Emanuel, former Clinton Staffer, may be named as Obama's Chief Of Staff as early as this afternoon.

Emanuel, known as an extremely aggressive, tough political figure signals the prgamatic tone of the Obama White House--a desire to ensure that errors such as those made at the beginning of the Clinton Presidency with regard to appointments, and the Carter Presidency with regard to lack of deep knowledge of and connections with DCs inner workings will not occur.

In short, a recognition that tough, informed, and well-connected pragmatism will be necessary to reach the high aims of the Administration.

The tone will be: Pragmatism, knowledge, and toughness to reach the goals of hope.
