Rahm Emanuel predicts uphill climb for Obama re-election

(CNN) – Rahm Emanuel left his post as White House Chief of Staff more than a year ago, but on Sunday the Chicago mayor waded back into presidential politics, saying his former boss’ reelection was far from a sure thing.

“There's no doubt there's a challenge politically because the economy is not where the American middle-class family needs it to be for their bottom line,” Emanuel said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

BLITZER'S BLOG: Sitting down with Rahm Emanuel and Bill Clinton in Chicago

Chicago (CNN) - I've covered Rahm Emanuel for many years – going back to 1992 when he was a young political aide to then-Governor Bill Clinton who was running for President.

He later joined President Clinton at the White House before heading back to his native Chicago to make some money in the financial investment business. After that, he came back to Washington as a congressman and remained as President Barack Obama's first White House Chief of Staff. But I must say I have never seen him as enthusiastic and excited as he is now as Mayor of Chicago.

Political Circus: Will the real Mayor Emanuel please stand up?

Washington (CNN) - Politics is serious business - but not all the time.

A big f****** deal

The Atlantic.com has a Twitter exclusive:

"It was the best fake Twitter account ever, deftly satirizing Rahm Emanuel, and elevating the Tweet and the f-word to the level of literature. But the mystery writer was never revealed – until now."
