Congressman Rahm Emanuel has accepted Obama’s offer to serve as the next White House Chief of Staff. One can only hope that he lives up to his heritage, and doesn’t turn out to be like the last child of an Irgun member to wield power, and attempts to remain true to the ideals for which his father fought.
UPDATE: “In an email to NBC News, Emanuel spokeswoman Sarah Feinberg denies the reporting that Emanuel has accepted the chief of staff job.” Nevertheless, it still seems likely that he will accept the job. “Illinois Rep. Rahm Emanuel has, as expected, accepted the job as chief of staff to President-elect Barack Obama, according to informed Democratic sources.”
UPDATE 2: I shouldn’t be holding my breath. Oh, I’m not.
