Rahm leads DCCC. I'll bet he traded Ways and Means for it.
Rahm Emanuel has accepted the Leave No Democratic Donor Behind chore of running the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. I'll bet he leveraged the promise to do all that work for the party into a committee assignment from Pelosi to Ways and Means, one of the best assignments there is. I wonder if he will be more open to seeing the Dem advantage to neutral Congressional maps than other federal Democratic leaders have been (notably Bill Lipinski and Rod Blagojevich who both pushed through an agreement for the current GOP friendly Illinois map in 2001).
