      transition.  The Republicans objected vigorously to anyone that was appointed to even the lowest of positions during that first year...and beyond.

      Whatever his strengths (and he has many), Rahm has a reputation for being very partisan. Whatever the reasons for this appointment (and there are many reasons in favor of it), his appointment cannot possibly be construed as a "reach across the aisle."  Did you expect Boehner to say nice things about him?  

      And anyway, what they think of him is not an issue, since the Congress has no say at all in the CoS position.
