Obama’s top rat deserting the ship
In November 2008, when Rahm Emanuel, with evident reluctance, gave up his House seat and his high position in the House Democratic leadership to be Obama’s chief of staff, would anyone have imagined that, having sacrificed so much to take the job, in less than two years he would quit it?
Nile Gardiner writes in the Telegraph:
Rahm Emanuel’s resignation is merely the shape of things to come as the conservative revolution prepares to sweep through Washington, and deliver momentous political change. His departure will be the latest blow to a president who is rapidly losing the support of his country as well as the confidence of his own party and even inner circle.
