On the Brink

You never allow a crisis to go to waste...this is a moment of peril, but also a moment of possibility.

Rahm Emanuel was on Charlie Rose last night.
Watching him, it occurred to me I was witnessing a man on the brink of a defining moment in his career: after Tuesday's inauguration, his life will never be the same.
Perhaps, on Jan. 17, 2010, I'll revisit this post to recall the feeling I feel today, looking at him now, wondering what's to become of him and the country he serves.
