Ready from Day 1

Tim Russert of NBC News interviewed Congressman Rahm Emanuel (D-IL) on Meet the Press, January 16, 2005.
MR. RUSSERT: You voted--you said you would have voted for the war if you had been in Congress.


MR. RUSSERT: Now, knowing that are no weapons of mass destruction, would you still have cast that vote?

REP. EMANUEL: Yes. ...

Mr. Emanuel is now President-elect Obama's Chief of Staff, which makes sense considering it would be impossible to staff the incoming administration without choosing Democrats who supported the war.

P.S. At KausFiles (November 9, 2008 8:57 P.M.) "I admire Rahm Emanuel. Without him welfare reform might not have happened in 1996..."
