This paper charts the rapid growth of Representative Rahm Emanuel's political career in the Democratic Party. The paper concludes with the notion that Emanuel's history, vocal stance and political record, all suggest that Emanuel's entrance into the equation certainly promises to pursue his ambition to bring about change to the administration.

From the Paper:

"On November 4th, 2008, Barrack Obama made history by becoming the first African American elected to the presidency of the United States. This is made all the more remarkable by his relative youth and the brevity of his time in the public spotlight. Thus, it should be seen as a fairly comparable decision that, according to a New York Times article in the days following the election, "Representative Rahm Emanuel of Illinois, the fourth-ranking House Democrat and a close friend of Mr. Obama's from Chicago, has been offered the job of chief of staff." (Baker & Zeleny, 1) This would mark a rapid path to high distinction in the Democratic Party, and as evidence suggests, it would deservedly be an honor given to a young and accomplished leader in the current leftward swing.
''His inception into national politics truly began with the start of the Clinton administration in 1992. His close professional relationship to the Clinton's was strengthened by the perception that, as an influential figure in the large Jewish community of Chicago, he could be counted upon for assistance with campaign fund-raising amongst powerful Israel and Jewish political action groups. This would prove not only accurate, but sufficiently modest in its reflection of that which he brought to the table. By all reports, Rahm Emanuel was an absolutely tireless and persistent ally, pursuing the agenda of election in particularly with incomparable tenacity.''
