Rahm for president? The view from Washington; Drudge scorching

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--"President Rahm? Maybe," is the headline over the Washington Post's Chris Cillizza column mulling the pros and cons of a Mayor Rahm Emanuel 2016 White House run. Meanwhile, over at the Drudge Report, a scorching homepage headline "Public Turns on Godfather," pegged to his low ratings in a new Crain's Chicago Business poll.

The Rahm 2016 buzz vaulted to a higher level last week after The Daily Beast reported that Emanuel, Obama's former chief of staff, "is said by well-connected Democrats to be considering the idea of running for president if Hillary Clinton opts out of the 2016 race."

Emanuel, the story said, "has had discussions both over the phone and face to face in the past month with Democratic Party donors and fundraisers about a possible White House run, according to sources."
