Decidido el número 3 de la Casa Blanca


El representante Rahm Emanuel de Chicago será el Chief of Staff de Obama.
Nota de AP
Barack Obama's fellow Chicagoan Rahm Emanuel, the hard-charging No. 3 Democrat in the House, has accepted the job White House chief of staff, Democratic officials said Thursday.
One of Obama's first decisions as president-elect was to ask the Illinois congressman to run his White House staff. The selection of the fiery Democrat marked a shift in tone for Obama, who chose more low-key leadership for his presidential campaign.
Emanuel, who served as a political and policy aide in the Clinton White House before running for Congress, weighed the family and political considerations before accepting. He will have to resign his seat, relinquish his position in the House Democratic leadership and put aside hopes of becoming House speaker.
Democratic officials who disclosed Obama's acceptance did so on the condition of anonymity to avoid angering Obama's team; it had not planned to announce the chief of staff position on Thursday.
In offering the White House post to Emanuel, Obama turned to a fellow Chicago politician with a far different style from his own, a man known for his bluntness as well as his single-minded determination.
House GOP leader John Boehner of Ohio called Emanuel "an ironic choice for a president-elect who has promised to change Washington, make politics more civil, and govern from the center."
Before accepting the job, Emanuel told Chicago's WLS-TV that he was honored to be considered but needed to weigh the impact on his family.
Quién es?
Rahm Emanuel (nacido en 1959) es miembro de la Cámara de Representantes por el partido demócrata desde 2003 por el 5º distrito de Illinois. Es el futuro jefe de gabiente de Barack Obama.[1]
Emanuel became a senior advisor to Clinton at the White House from 1993 to 1998. In the White House, Emanuel was initially Assistant to the President for Political Affairs and then Senior Advisor to the President for Policy and Strategy. He was a leading strategist in the unsuccessful White House efforts to institute universal healthcare and many other Clinton initiatives.[10]
Emanuel fue jefe de campaña del Partido Demócrata para las elecciones al Congreso de 2006. Después de que el partido obtuviera la mayoría en la Cámara de Representantes, fue elegido como presidente para el siguiente Caucus. Entre los demócratas de la Cámara ocupa el cuarto puesto en importancia, por detrás de la presidenta Nancy Pelosi, el líder Steny Hoyer y Jim Clyburn.
Su actividad política se caracteriza por un marcado estilo y la habilidad para la recaudación de fondos. Es coautor, junto a al Presidente del Consejo Demócrata Bruce Reed, del libro de 2006, The Plan: Big Ideas for America. Forma parte de la New Democrat Coalition, una agrupación de congresistas con una ideología afín, claman ser pro-empresa moderados. El 5 de noviembre de 2008, después de la victoria de Barack Obama, este ofreció a Emanuel pasara a ser Jefe de Gabinete con la nueva administración a partir de enero de 2009, que aceptó un día más tarde.[2]
Political views
During his original 2002 campaign, Emanuel "indicated his support of President Bush's position on Iraq, but said he believed the president needed to better articulate his position to the American people."[9] Inspired by his pediatrician father, one of the major goals he spoke of during the race was "to help make health care affordable and available for all Americans."[9]
Emanuel has maintained a 100 percent pro-choice voting record and is generally liberal on socia issues. He has aligned himself with the Democratic Leadership Council and the party's centrist wing, but is not among its more conservative members.Rahm Emanuel endorses the United States Public Service Academy Act.
According to Fox News, in accordance with his deep Jewish roots and volunteering in Israel when it was under attack from Saddam Hussein's missiles in the first Gulf War, he has indicated consistent support for Israel. In a November 2008 article it claims that while expressing empathy for Palestinians, Emanuel has explicitly condemned their leaders. [21] In June 2007, Emanuel condemned an outbreak of Palestinian violence in the Gaza Strip and criticized Arab countries for not applying the same kind of pressure on the Palestinians as they have on Israel. "Fatah and Hamas are tearing the Palestinian area of the Gaza strip apart in what they call a political rivalry, and the Palestinian people are paying a price for Palestinian violence," he said at the time. "Governments from around the world and the Arab world have said nothing. ... I just want you to think for a second, if this were the result of Israeli-Palestinian hostilities, would the international silence and the silence of the Arab world be this deafening?" At a 2003 pro-Israel rally in Chicago, Emanuel told the marchers Israel was ready for peace but would not get there until Palestinians "turn away from the path of terror," according to the Chicago Tribune.
**dato para West Wing junkies:
Bradley Whitford's character Josh Lyman on NBC television series The West Wing is said to be based on Emanuel,[2] who made a cameo appearance at the same restaurant as Josh Lyman in the 7th season episode "The Wedding."

Nota de Mike Allen Politico Playbook
EXCLUSIVE: Robert Gibbs will be the White House press secretary, a top Democratic official tells Politico. The announcement is likely to be welcomed by reporters because Gibbs, who was usually the senior aide on Air Obama, has unquestioned authority, access and institutional memory. As communications director of the Senate office, Gibbs helped plan and package Obama's meteoric ascent on the national stage. Gibbs -- the pride of Auburn, Ala. -- became familiar to viewers during the campaign for his sunny steeliness during frequent appearances on morning shows and A-list cable-news programs. From his July promotion announcement: 'Robert Gibbs, one of Senator Obama's longest-serving and closest aides, has been elevated to Senior Strategist for Communications and Message taking on a broader strategic portfolio for the Fall campaign while continuing to serve as senior communications aide traveling with Senator Obama.'
Robert L. Gibbs (b. 1971) is an American political consultant. Gibbs is the communications director for U.S. Senator Barack Obama and Obama's 2008 presidential campaign. According to news reports, he will be named White House press secretary to the new President.[1][2] Gibbs, who has worked with Obama since 2004, was press secretary of John Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign and has previously specialized in Senate campaigns, having served as communications director for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and for four individual Senate campaigns, including those of Obama in 2004 and Fritz Hollings in 1998. Gibbs was also the press secretary of Representative Bob Etheridge.[3] Gibbs received criticism in 2007 for his connection with a 527 political group which launched attack ads against presidential candidate Howard Dean during the 2004 presidential election.[4]
