A ho-hum article on supposed "infighting" in the White House.

There's bound to be some conflict at some point, so whatever.

However, the article does list the things Rahm Emanuel has pushed for:

-- Emanuel was uncomfortable with the plan to close the Guantanamo Bay prison within a year -- a goal that was not met.

-- Emanuel opposed the decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, alleged ringleader of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, in civilian court, and was particularly concerned the decision would alienate Republicans needed in the quest to close Guantanamo.

-- Emanuel opposed the decision to widen an internal probe into CIA interrogations, expressing concern about "re-litigating the past."

-- Emanuel originally argued for a smaller-scale health care reform bill, though Obama and congressional Democrats pursued a sweeping legislative overhaul.

-- Emanuel wanted to focus more on jobs creation toward the end of last year, but was overruled by Obama, who wanted to pursue health care reform.

I actually agree with Emanuel on all of these things. Thoughts?

Either that, or you meant to review the upcoming action movie.
