Pelosi Praises Departing Rahm

Nancy Pelosi has just released a statement on the Emanuel annoucement:

"The White House’s gain is the House of Representatives’ loss. Rahm will be missed here as Chairman of the Democratic Caucus; he is extraordinarily talented and is one of the most effective Members of Congress.

“Rahm Emanuel knows the policy, he understands the politics, and he loves America – Barack Obama and the nation will be well-served.”
