GUTIERREZ: SUPPORT FOR RAHM'S MAYORAL RUN TIED TO DREAM ACT

Rate this Entry

Very intriguing. Here's the lowdown from HuffPostHill:



Luis Gutierrez, Nydia Velazquez and Bob Menendez will meet with the president tomorrow at 2:30 to talk immigration reform. Gutierrez says he'll push Obama to use his muscle to get the DREAM Act through Congress. If Rahm Emanuel shows up, two potential Chicago mayoral candidates will be in the room together. Gutierrez, who said today that a run is "tempting," said he'd have a hard time supporting Emanuel if he doesn't, given his history of slowing down immigration reform. He still remembers, Gutierrez said, when Emanuel, as head of the DCCC, was telling Democrats to vote for a draconian Republican immigration bill in 2006. But if he helps make the DREAM Act a reality, all could be forgiven. "I would be very indebted and grateful to Rahm," he said, adding that so would the Latino community.

    Rahm Immanuel and Alan Simpson are the main reasons the Dems are in such a mess right now! Necessary condition for an Obama win is the Dems loosing the House and the sufficient condition is when Rahm Immanueal is no longer chief of staff at the WH.

    On second thoughts...the faster they kick Rahm out of the WH, the better...and in that regard, Guitterez should very strongly endorse the guy!

    Michael Moore said he could work for free as Chief of Staff!!! I have been saying right from the outset Rahm Emanuel needs to be out of the WH for any immigration reform.
