WASHINGTON Rep. Rahm Emanuel of Illinois, a former advisor in the Clinton White House, was selected Sunday as head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

2. GREAT Quotes about Bush + SS from Emanuel
Here are some bout the election:

"While owner of the Texas Rangers, George W. Bush traded Sammy Sosa.

In November, Americans have a chance to trade Mr. Bush."

4. Even MORE!
"And in baseball you dont declare mission accomplished until the games last out.

I am surprised the White House hasnt boasted about the Expos move from Montreal. After all, theyll finally be creating some jobs here in America."

6. GREAT CHOICE! I LOVE RAHM EMANUEL!!!
I remember seeing him and Anthony Wiener and John Lewis speaking against the Republicans plan to keep cases regarding gay marriage from being heard by the Supreme Court (wholly unconstitutional, mind you) on c-span and being inspired. Great choice!

Regarding Gay Marriage on Crossfire:

"My Republican friends love to privatize things. But they refuse to privatize people's private lives." - Rahm Emanuel








I hope he runs for president one day. I'd sure vote for him!

7. Here's his voting record...

I'd call it excellent, generally liberal with strong pro-choice, pro-gun control, and pro-civil rights views. However, he is a member of the dreaded DLC, the notorious daemons who inhabit the nightmares of some DUers. Therefore, we must immediately reject his voting record and cast him out because of the whole "guilt by association" thing!

<<<that is sarcasm-I think Emanuel is one of the VERY best things the Democratic party has going for it right now>>>

on edit: Sorry, nvmojo, didn't realize you'd already posted vote smart!

8. He's well liked and respected in Illinois
During his campaign he did well while enduring shite-slinging from the usual suspects.
