*+-Jules Siegel: Rahm Emanuel must make an accommodation with Dean. Otherwise, 2010 is going to be a repeat of Massachusetts, and Barack Hussein Obama will probably be a one-term president.

This is a very astute politician who looks like a Ken Doll and can talk like a sane person when he wants to.
