Rahm Emanuel gets the Scott Turow treatment in the New York Times

| No Comments

The national fascination with the mayoral candidacy of former Obama White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel continues, with the Sunday New York Times magazine running a long story about Emanuel by Chicago author, lawyer, Democrat and civic activist Scott Turow. Turow is interviewing Emanuel at Steve's Deli when Emanuel has to take a call from President Obama. New White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley--who replaced Emanuel--is quoted throughout. No news here; just a good overview by Turow of how Emanuel became a front-runner. The turning point: The residency hearings which made the brash and arrogant Emanuel a sympathetic character. The election is Tuesday.
