Rahm Emanuel is a partisan, a liberal, and a bare-knuckled political brawler. But there is a silver lining in this pick: Emanuel has vivid memories of 1994 and has been fiercely protective of the more moderate red-state Democrats he has gotten elected as chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. While these facts may complicate Republican efforts to retake Congress or the presidency, they could also serve as a check on some of Obama’s most liberal ambitions. Emanuel will be perfectly willing to use the new Democratic majorities, but not lose them.
UPDATE: See what I mean?
