I've already posted on this topic so I won't bore you again. However, reports are that President-elect Obama has asked Congressman Rahm Emanuel to be White House Chief of Staff and that Emanuel has said yes.
ABC's George Stephanopoulos reports that a close ally of Obama's stated that "Obama likes the fact that Emanuel knows policy, knows politics, knows Capitol Hill.
Obama has told associates that he knows that Emanuel will 'have his back.'"
UPDATE I: Emanuel says yes.
UPDATE II: Here's a nice biographical piece about Rahm Emanuel and his brothers from the Washingtonian, published May 2008.
