BLITZER’S BLOG: Sitting down with Rahm Emanuel and Bill Clinton in Chicago

After that, he came back to Washington as a congressman and remained as President Barack Obama’s first White House Chief of Staff. But I must say I have never seen him as enthusiastic and excited as he is now as Mayor of Chicago.
