Rahm Emmanuel

The outrageous Ari Gold from HBO's Entourage is not so loosely based upon executive producer Mark Wahlberg's own agent, Ari Emmanuel who is the real life brother of the White House Chief of Staff.

Naftali Bendavid profiled Rahm in "The Thumpin'" and paints a picture of a profane political commando who was ruthless in his pursuit of retaking the House for Democrats in 2006.

Rahm, pictured here greeting his former House colleagues at the Inauguration, by a factor of 5 was my first choice for White House Chief of Staff.

The NYTs has a nice profile up today of the kinder, gentler Rahm who is Obama's right hand man.
