Rahm is out after Nov. 8

I don't know how I feel about the news that Rahm Emanuel will retire as head of the DCCC after the November elections. Mostly I'm glad. I've made it pretty clear here how I feel about his role in the 6th and elsewhere in recruiting good, progressive candidates.

So why did he do it? He has said that the reason he's quitting is to spend more time with his family. Right. Maybe he senses that Democrats can't pull it off this time around and doesn't want his name sullied with the albatross of an '06 loss, the time that we all know the Democrats should have won. That leaves me with a sense of forboding.
