Rahm Flashbacks by Tom Bevan FROM Real Clear Politics

Rahm Emanuel will be Obama's new White House chief-of-staff. You decide what kind of change, if any, this choice represents.

"CRONY CAPITALISM: Thirty months. Sixteen point two million dollars. That's more than half a million dollars per month. Details of a Halliburton contract in Iraq, you say? Nope. It's the amount of money Rahm Emanuel made working as an investment banker in the scant two and a half years between leaving the Clinton White House and going to Congress last year as the representative from Illinois' 5th district.
