Rahm Emmanuel


Emanuel may very well prove an effective choice in dealing with a Congress that is too often tied up in knots by the Republicans. Remember that Emanuel will be carrying out Obama’s policies, and Rahm won’t be bringing a steak knife to the fights ahead; he’ll be shooting a bazooka.

Rahm, precisely because he’s a lover of Israel, will not have much patience with Israeli excuse-making.

It will be very hard for right-wing Israelis to come back and accuse him of being a self-hating Jew.

Assuming he does challenge them. But anything Rahm does presumably will be based on Obama policy.
