"One thing I think the Obama team has learned a lot from is the mistakes we made in the Clinton transition," George says. Choosing U.S. Rep. Rahm Emanuel, a fellow Chicagoan, as his chief of staff right off the bat is an indication of this. "It's one sign he wants to have some order and discipline and control," he says. "One of the reasons that President-elect Obama picked him is that he told friends that he knows Rahm Emanuel has got his back. You need someone like that."
