Ironic that one of those most responsible for Obama's downfall is now promoting him. The arrogant narrowness which is Rahm Emanuel, helped cripple Pres Obama for his first two years in the white house and set the tone for his disastrous foreign policy. Obama has wisely tried to distance himself from this ideological pariah, but is still fighting for his political life against an until recently unknown, mid-level Republican politician. Thanks a lot Rahm. Hopefully you will at least offer your old friend a job in Chicago come January 2013 - should the need present itself.
