President-elect Obama Makes His First Appointment


Soon-to-be-PRESIDENT Barack Obama isn’t messing around.

He’s already working hard to get things in order!

It was announced on Thursday that Illinois U.S. Congressman Rahm Emanuel will be the administration’s chief of staff.

The LA Times reports that Mr. Emanuel previously served in Bill Clinton’s White House and that experience will allow him to guide President-elect Obama on legislative strategy and the workings of the executive branch.

The newly named chief of staff is also known to be tough as nails and a guy who knows how to get shiz done.


Interesting note, Rahm was the inspiration for the character Josh Lyman on The West Wing.

And, his brother is Hollywood super agent, Ari Emanuel, who inspired Jeremy Piven’s character Ari Gold in Entourage.

Their momma must be so proud of her boys!
