Rahm Emanuel takes Chief of Staff position

Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-Ill.), a wily, aggressive West Wing strategist under President Bill Clinton, has accepted the post of White House chief of staff for President-elect Barack Obama, Democratic officials tell Politico.
Apparently, the character of Josh Lyman on The West Wing was based partly on Rahm Emanuel. Which is funny, because apparently some of the inspiration for the Matt Santos character was Barack Obama. Santos chose Lyman as his chief of staff. Now Obama has Emanuel as his chief of staff. Does that mean that Obama has MS but hasn't been telling us, and that he will negotiate a comprehensive Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement? No. But the parallels are fun to point out.

What an amazing time in American history. Dreams do come true! Did you all see how Oprah Winfrey revealed this week that she uses a vision board to visualize her goals and harness the power of intention? Oprah created a vision board, months ago, that emphasized Obama as president and the gown she intended to wear during his imagined inauguration.

FYI, a vision board is collage of image that symbolizes a desired outcome. By looking at these images daily and imagining these desired outcomes – like accomplishing a goal – your brain becomes more honed in to making this reality. Many top athletes, entrepreneurs, presidents, and philanthropists have used vision boards to help them accomplish their goals.

I know that on you can download a free chapter that includes the eight basic ingredients of a successful vision board.
