Rahm Emanuel: "Pit Bull," "Hemorrhoid," "Toothache"

President-Elect Obama has made his selection for point man, Chief of Staff -- Rahm Emanuel, the man Fortune describes as a "pit bull." Clinton-era Democratic operative Paul Begala identifies Emanuel as having an aggressive style that is "a cross between a hemorrhoid and a toothache."

Regardless how much Senator Obama campaigned for changing politics and the nastiness of tone (and McCain tried to portray himself as above pettiness), politics ain't beanbag. Obama signals that he understands this with his first major staff pick.
