A number of you have written in about that article in the UK Telegraph saying Rahm will resign some time later this year. First, I have no idea if or when Rahm is going to resign. Wouldn’t surprise me at all if he did. But. But, and it’s a big ‘but’, if I had a nickel for every big scoop on American politics published by one of the big UK dailies that turned out to be nonsense and based on nothing, well … I’d be a rich man. And that takes a lot of nickels.
The record is so bad as to almost suggest this might be evidence that Rahm has pledged to stay until Obama leaves office.
