Watch for the Obama Team To Emulate The Clinton White House — A Significant Revelation Regarding the Blago Affair After 6:00 pm Today
[Posted by WLS Shipwrecked]
The late Friday dump of damaging information was made into an art form by the Clinton White House. We have a leak today that incoming White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel had conversations with Blago about filling the Senate seat.
Obama has pledged to make public the contacts between his staff and the Illinois Governor and his staff. Expect that to come late today, with the hope that it will be buried over the weekend by Big 3 bailout news. Look for there to be no Obama team presence on the Sunday shows. By Monday they want this all to be treated as yesterday’s news, as they move forward and concentrate on cabinet nominees and preparing for confirmation hearings.
Fortunately for Obama, as Chief of Staff, Emanuel does not undergo Senate confirmation.
