Emanuel for Chief of Staff?

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

ABC News has learned that President-elect Obama has offered the White House chief of staff job to Rep. Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill.

Emanuel, a knowledgeable source tells ABC News, has not yet given his answer. The sharp-tongued, sharp-elbowed, keenly intelligent veteran of the Clinton White House is said to have ambitions to some day be Speaker of the House. But he also has a keen sense of "duty." - ABC News
UPDATE: Emanuel has accepted, per MSNBC. This is not yet confirmed.
