If you’ve ever seen The West Wing, the character of Josh Lyman is based on the young Rahm Emmanuel when he was Bill Clinton’s Political Affairs adviser. This scene from the first season is classic Rahmbo vote-whipping:LA replies:
Wow. That’s some dialogue. And of course the liberals loved it. They get to love their saintly sage President Bartlett, and they get to love his stick-in-the-shiv assistant. It’s a great crowd, those liberals, fine human beings.Ken Hechtman writes:
If it makes you feel any better, in real life the liberal wing of the Democratic party threatened primary challenges against the Blue Dogs and Rahm Emmanuel twisted arms to make the liberals stop.LA replies:
Interesting, but confusing. What are we to make of this? That Emanuel is the exact opposite of what he’s generally said to be? That he does the opposite of what the Emanuel-like character in West Wing did?
