"With deep connections to high finance and a penchant for profanity, Rahm Emanuel became the mayor of Chicago and seized control of its notorious Democratic party machine. This compelling examination of the contradictory past of this former congressman and White House Chief of Staff sheds a spotlight on our entire political system and the important issues that surround it"-- Provided by publisher.

Read about the preemptive arrests of activists and members of one of two last real unions in America today, National Nurses United, by Rahm Emanuel, and why real dems depise him! A neoliberal is a neocon who is too dishonest to state what he really is! Mayor Emanuel of Chicago .... reduced library hours, closed mental health clinics, and eliminated many city jobs - - the typical neocon phony crat! Emanuel, between political jobs, worked at private equity/lbo firm [which no longer exists] called Wasserstein Perella, from which he was supposed to have walked away with $17 million. Sen. Maria Cantwell, in between congressional positions, worked as VP of Real Networks' HR and left with $17 million. Richard Holbrooke, in between state department jobs, which he originally attained with family connections, since he flunked the foreign service exam and nobody else would hire him, went to Wall Street with his buddies, and left there with $17 million. Question: What is the typical price to purchase politicians today?
