Heh! Then again someone has to tell all those who have raised President-Elect Obama to his present height that there will be no pay-back. Rahm Emanuel is just the man to do it. From the point of view of the rest of the world (since we do not actually know how the new President will react to Russia or Iran) what we need to know whether the new Chief of Staff will tell the unions where they can go with their demands for protectionism.
The whole saga has Shakespearian overtones. We watch and wait.
