OBAMA'S FIRST ORDER OF BIZ
I'm loving this already:
President-elect Barack Obama selected hard-charging Illinois Rep. Rahm Emanuel as White House chief of staff. Emanuel was a political and policy aide in Bill Clinton's White House. Leaving that, he turned to investment banking, then won a Chicago-area House seat six years ago.
Emanuel maintained neutrality during the long primary battle between Obama and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, not surprising given his long-standing ties to the former first lady and his Illinois connections with Obama.
Obama's transtition team is headed by John Podesta, who served as chief of staff under former President Clinton; Pete Rouse, who has been Obama's chief of staff in the Senate, and Valerie Jarrett, a friend of the president-elect and campaign adviser.
I hear John Kerry is posting for a sec of state position. Think again. That backstabing, no back bone HAM. Karma's a bish. You bailed on Hillary yet Bidden got the VP nod you wanted. And all the Clinton staff that stood by them will get jobs up in the Obama administration. That's what you get you ungrateful 2 timing bish. And this goes to you Senator Kennedy and that lame Bill Richardson.
