Obama to tap Jewish congressman as chief of staff?



Rumors abound this time of year, but here is one that would make American Jews even more comfortable with Barack Obama than they already are: In the event he wins the election, Obama is considering U.S. Rep. Rahm Emanuel, one of the highest-ranking, best-respected Jews in the House, as his chief of staff.

Emanuel would be the third Jewish chief of staff at the White House. President Bush’s current top deputy, Joshua Bolten, is Jewish.
