Mr. Emanuel goes to Washington.

Former Clinton aide (and Stephanopoulos replacement) Rahm Emanuel wins his Illinois primary and, barring an historic upset, will enter Congress in November. Good luck to him, I suppose…he’s extremely effective when on the offensive, but back in the Carville days he was always one of those guys on the phone who treated you like the help. (We were the help, of course…nevertheless, his phone manner was definitely lacking. We weren’t even his subordinates.) At any rate, gracious or no, I’m sure he’ll do well in Congress.
