Rahm Emanuel says he's not "Hyper-Partisan"

From CNN.

So I guess Rahm Emanuel is going to "Change" (yes, he can...:) now that he is chief of staff for Obama. His record is very partisan, his voting record is 98.5% liberal, and the BBC's profile of him says he is an "aggressive operator".

He is described as a democratic bulldog. In the BBC article, Paul Begala described him thusly, "He's got this big old pair of brass balls," he said. "And you can just hear 'em clanking when he walks down the halls of Congress."

Govtrack.us lists him as a "Rank and File Democrat."

With Obama picking Emanuel, Podesta and other historically partisan democrats, I'm starting to wonder when the "bi-partisan" starts.
