Dead Fish Emanuel: Most powerful Chief of Staff ever?


Perhaps nothing illustrates how far Mr. Emanuel has come than that conversation last month. Sixteen years ago, it was Mrs. Clinton, then first lady, who helped have Mr. Emanuel demoted as a senior official in Bill Clinton’s White House after he ruffled feathers with his aggressive style. Now all these years later, it is Mr. Emanuel telling Mrs. Clinton what she cannot do as a member of the cabinet.

I don’t generally like these fluff pieces, but this one is pretty neat anyway. It’s about Rahm Emanuel and looking at how powerful/workaholic he has become as Obama‘s chief of staff. It’s a good read to help understand the power moves going on in Washington.
