Proviso legislator to be Obama Chief of Staff

Congressman Rahm Emanuel (D-IL05) represents Melrose Park in the U.S. House of Representatives. President-elect Barack Obama has tapped Emanuel to be chief of staff. See James Pethokoukis (U.S. News & World Report).

Emanuel is exceedingly disciplined.

Emanuel is from the Democratic Leadership Council wing of the party. The DLC supports so-called free trade agreements, like NAFTA and the World Trade Organization. This is part of the DLC's larger pro-business agenda. The DLC advocates Democrats not look weak on security issues by advocating for military spending and supporting a hawkish foreign policy.

These are all aspects of the Clinton administration I grew to question.
