Boehner Assails Emanuel Pick

House Minority Whip John Boehner, R-Ohio, issued a statement decrying the appointment of Rep. Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill., as President-elect Barack Obama's White House chief of staff.

“This is an ironic choice for a President-elect who has promised to change Washington, make politics more civil, and govern from the center," Boehner said.

As both a senior White House strategist to President Bill Clinton and the 4th ranking Democrat in the House, Emanuel is known for his take-no-prisoners style.
