Emanuel Now Linked to Blago in Public Mind
Intended Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel discussed Obama's Senate successor with members of Illinois Guv Rod Blagojevich's team.
This is probably not a big surprise to most of us, Rham and Blago (sounds like a monster movie, doesn't it?) have been thick as...well, they've been friends for some time. Emanuel slipped into the House seat that Blagojevich vacated when he became Governor in 2002.
Nothing is known about whether Emanuel was privy to the Senate seat auction that Blagojevich was planning, but the scandal has now officially breached the inner circle of the Obama team.
For those of you who thought Obama would skate through this totally unscathed, now is a perfect time to reassess your prognostications.
