Breaking News: Chief Of Staff

Ken AshfordObama & AdministrationLeave a Comment

The second most important job in the United States, functionally-speaking, is the President's Chief of Staff.  The Chief of Staff sets the agenda (though not the policy), is the gatekeeper of presidential access, and is generally charged with "getting things done".

MSNBC just reported that Rahm Emanuel has accepted that post in the Obama administration.

It's a good choice.  Emanuel has the right demeanor.
