Rahm Sets the Stage in Iowa

November 19, 2011
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, former chief of staff to President Obama, will make the case for his re-election tonight in the state that launched him to the Democratic nomination in 2008.

Emanuel is slated to address the Iowa Democratic Party at the Jefferson Jackson dinner, its biggest annual fundraiser.

"The President did not make choices based on politics. He made them because of his principles,'' Emanuel will say, according to excerpts of his prepared remarks. "He did not make choices for the next election, he made them for the next generation...President Obama never tailored what he believed to the moment.''

Emanuel's pitch contrasts with the image Democrats are trying to create of the putative Republican frontrunner, Mitt Romney, as a shape-shifting, political opportunist.
