Around 7, Rahm’s presence decreased as the evening continued. According to Google Blog Search, the blogs are still buzzing about his promotion. The majority of tweets are from foreigners passing on the news. His Facebook page saw a small surge of 200 fans. (But I’m still going to keep an eye on it.)

Earlier, American Buffalo, the play by David Mamet, had dropped from the trend radar at Google. But both Rahm and American Buffalo are there right now:

Special Note: For those tracking this story, I will make a special comment on his daily trending stats in my “3 in the morning” post.

So, the news of Rahm Emanuel’s appointment to head Obama’s staff is volcanic. Let’s look at some snapshots of where there is activity and where there will be activity.

First, Google Trends. He’s numero uno, trumping any searches on Palin, Obama, or Prop 8. Earlier I noted that American Buffalo and a weird query about samurai weapons topped the charts. Now, the spotlight goes to Rahm.

Earlier, Rahm was popular on Twitter, but right now Prop 8 is getting more passion. The opinions of Twitter-ers is driving the conversation on Twitter, whereas Rahm was getting news tweets. Still, in true Twitter form, people are still talking:

I took this snapshot of Rahm’s page on Facebook. Right now, as the shot shows, there are 1,813 supporters behind his political career. But he’s just accepted a job. Will the page go down in 3 months, will it gain more fans. Hm, I can only wonder.

On Delicious, Rahm’s stats aren’t very good either. It seems he’s been overlooked there too:

Things are already different in the transfer of power from Bush to Obama. I’m talking change.gov. Obama’s team has created this website to cover transitional developments, and to start getting people involved with Obama’s administration.

Conservative pundits worried that Rahm Emanuel’s appointment as C.O.S. meant a same-old-same-old administration was in the works. Not so. Obama knows what got him into the white house, and his team knows what’s going to help him connect to the people.

Right now you can read the blog, learn about the President-Elect and Vice President-Elect, see their current agenda, and of course see all developments about cabinet picks and administrative job hirings.

Need a job in your next government. This is where you can apply for a role on Obama’s team.

Bookmark this page because it is a small part of Obama’s dream to transform our involvement with our government.
