Remember when it was reported that President-elect Barack Obama had a problem with the Jewish vote?
In one of President-elect Barack Obama's first Presidential decisions since Election Day he selected Representative Rahm Emanuel to be his Chief of Staff. We all know that Emanuel has "has a proven commitment to Israel’s security and served as civilian volunteer on an Israeli military base during the Persian Gulf War of 1991." We also know that Emanuel's "aggressive, pragmatic style of politics" makes him the perfect selection to be Obama's Chief of Staff.
But could have Emanuel's selection had something to do with his first name - Rahm?
Thunder & Lightning = Change that can get it done
*Point of clarification: Ra'am- spelled reish, ayin, mem - means thunder, but it depends on how he spells his name. If he spells his name reish, mem, then it may mean something different (like "high, lofty, or loud") - and it looks like he may. (Thanks for the heads up Nava!)
