Is Biden Obama’’s ”No. 3”?January 27th, 2009 - 1:43 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Jan.27 (ANI): A comment appearing on a blog in the United States has suggested that there is a change in the pecking order at the White House.
It suggests that after President Barack Obama, the number two man is not Vice President Joe Biden, but White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emmanuel. Biden, it claims is number three, which could leave him pretty unhappy.
According to the Washington Times, Mark Liebovich’’s profile of Rahm Emanuel on Sunday says: “Mr. Emanuel initially resisted taking the job. He came around after Mr. Obama insisted, saying these were momentous times and that the awesome tasks he faced required Mr. Emanuels help. The president-elect also assured Mr. Emanuel that the position would be the functional equivalent of ”a No. 2” or ”right-hand man,” according to a person familiar with their exchanges.” What does that make the vice president?, asks the paper.
