Rahm Emanuel, Chief of Staff.
Politico says it's confirmed.
Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-Ill.), a wily, aggressive West Wing strategist under President Bill Clinton, has accepted the post of White House chief of staff for President-elect Barack Obama, Democratic officials tell Politico.
The selection is the first major public decision by Obama since he was elected in a landslide on Tuesday.
The decision is to be announced Friday in Chicago, when Obama holds his first news conference as president-elect, after a meeting with his economic advisers. Aides say Obama and his family will relax at home for the weekend, then come to Washington to visit their new home, the White House, at the invitation of President Bush and First Lady Laura Bush.
