Rahm is MAD

Rahm Emanuel told a cameraman for ABC News, "I'm getting regular death threats. You've put my home address on national television. I'm pi**** at the networks. You've intruded too much."

I've said before on this blog that if I were a liberal I'd be upset Obama tapped Emanuel to come to the White House. Emanuel was effective in the House and helped keep Speaker Pelosi in check. I think he probably harbored ambitions of becoming Speaker himself someday. When you are the president's man, as Emanuel is now, you can't really be your own brand--and like him or not Emanual was a recongizable, hard-knuckled icon for the Democrats.

It would be a big loss for the party if Emanuel got taken down in the Blagojevich scandal because he was called to serve in the Obama White House.
