Then, almost seven months later, my wife, Judy, wrote a blog entry in which she made some side comments that mentioned Rahm Emanuel and me. Please give that a read over at the Judy's Jewels entry, George Stephanopoulos, posted on June 28, 2009.
Well, that Judy's Jewels entry led to me writing another Roland's Ramblings blog entry the following day in which I again referenced Rahm Emanuel. Click on over to read the Roland's Ramblings entry, Political Commentators: Washington Fearsome Foursome and Toledo Three Amigos, posted on June 29, 2009.
Alright, alright. I am getting around to the point of this Roland Hansen Commentary, but a few other reads for you first will be necessary.
Back on July 12, 2012, there was a piece (video and article) over on The Hill that centered around Rahm Emanuel in which it was mentioned that he had previously served in President Obama's White House, was presently Mayor of Chicago, and in which Rahm Emanuel is quoted as having said, in part, "... I can't wait for Washington" ---- I kid you not!

More recently, I read two articles concerning Rahm Emanuel that have renewed my interest in this very interesting person. I am attaching embedded links, as follows, please read them both:
Rahm Emanuel: D.C. hero, Chicago goat, Maggie Haberman, Politico, June 6, 2014.
Maybe Rahm Emanuel Should Have Stayed In Washington, Arit John, The Wire, June 6, 2014.
All the preceding brings me to this Roland Hansen Commentary. But first, one more link. Please read the Rahm Emanuel Wikipedia article.
There has been a whole lot of talk going on about the 2016 Presidential Election with Hillary Clinton being a strong contender to be the Democratic Party nominee. To that, I say PSHAW!
I say this:
2016: Run for President, Rahm Emanuel.
