Will the President do a better job without Rahm Emanuel ??

Today, the President signalled that he would pocket veto the foreclosure bill passed by the Senate and favored by the big banks. Would Rahm have advised him to sign it? Perhaps?

Without Rahm, will the President be freed up to act more on behalf of the people? If today is any indication, the answer is "Yes". No doubt, the addition of Austan Goolsbee and Elizabeth Warren to his circle of advisers will help him.

Rahm Emanuel was not a progressive. He exhibited antipathy toward the liberal base. But, in truth, this is exactly what the President and the nation needs at this time. We have to counter the radical right message with a strong liberal voice. The President will be a different President without Rahm Emanuel, I have no doubt.
