Don't do this Joe Biden. Don't. This will be a massive betrayal. This is why the Blue Wall people voted for Trump! Just read the article including the last paragraph. Rahm is a little hitler-neo-liberal. I swear, I would rather have Elliot Spitzer (even with his scandal) appointed vs. Rham.

Well, Rahm has been carrying a lot of water for Joe this entire election cycle. I'm sure that wasn't done "for free". He's going to land somewhere, but I do agree that Transportation shouldn't be it.

Rahm does have a long history of not being particularly union friendly. A foreign post would be the best thing for him really.

Yea, I agree. If he's due payment, then put him somewhere else. You don't want to blow this with the unions. The unions have been getting craped on for a long time. You want a pro union person, that's not going to sell out to management, and tell the worker and the unions to go pound sand.

That simply will not due. He is also known to exclude the left side of the democratic party. He's been very outspoken about his views about telling off the left wing of the democratic party and telling them to "Go take a hike" on numerous occasions. He has also caused a few messes also.

The following come's from one of the click on links from the article above^ He's a Neo-Liberal Nazi for sure. Read how he's treated the other wing of the party. If he was campaigning with Joe in the background somewhere, then it's easy to see why everyone else got treated the way they did during the primary, and especially Bernie and Warren. < Below >


The post of transportation secretary has long been considered somewhat outside of politics, which, paradoxically, could be an advantage for Emanuel as he pursues it, given that it is a less threatening position to hold — which could dampen opposition from both progressives in the Democratic Party and from Republicans. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., spoke for many on the party’s left flank when she told the New York Times that an Emanuel appointment would be “divisive” at a time the party needs to come together. “It would signal, I think, a hostile approach to the grassroots and the progressive wing of the party,” Ocasio-Cortez said. Emanuel has largely directed his most aggressive political assaults not at Republicans, but at the progressive wing of the party.

Emanuel was first elected to Congress in 2002 as a backer of the Iraq War and ran the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in 2006, a wave year for Democrats that saw fierce primaries between progressives and Emanuel-backed centrists. “We took on the communists in the party,” Emanuel celebrated after one primary victory. During his stint in the Obama administration, Emanuel was frequently at war privately with progressive groups to get them to keep their skepticism of the administration quiet — at one point telling a meeting of progressives that they were “fucking retarded” for pressuring Blue Dog Democrats, and at other times threatening the outside funding of organizations that didn’t get in line. Emanuel later apologized for using the word “retarded.”
