Rahm Emanuel in the NYT Magazine
The media is giving Rahmblr -- the single-topic blog on Rahm Emanuel published on the Tumblr platform -- a run for its money.
The latest story about the president's chief of staff comes from New York Times White House reporter Peter Baker, a former Post White House correspondent. He has penned the upcoming New York Times Magazine story, "The Limits of Rahmism."
Baker sets up the moment Emanuel is facing:
The stupid season has arrived for Barack Obama and Rahm Emanuel, the unlikely tandem of inspirational leader and legislative mechanic that was supposed to enact the most expansive domestic program since the Great Society. After the debacle in Massachusetts that cost Democrats their supermajority in the Senate, Washington has engaged in a favorite exercise, conducting the autopsy before the body is actually dead. How had it come to this? How did the president's legislative drive drag on for so long that the surprise loss of a Senate seat could unravel it? Did Obama make a mistake by disregarding his top adviser's counsel? Or was it Emanuel who failed to execute the president's strategy? Was it both, or perhaps neither?
