The Defense Department Is Not A Political Subsidiary Of The White House

Obama should let Secretary Gates run the Department of Defense.  Rahm can run Chicago.  Deal?

William Kristol lets loose:

"Yesterday, in light of Rahm Emanuel’s comments on delaying the decision on troops for Afghanistan, I asked: “Are Sunday talk show declarations by Emanuel and political advisor David Axelrod an appropriate way to announce the considered judgment of the president at this stage of a long Cabinet-level review process? Or is Emanuel end-running the process? Do Secretaries Gates and Clinton agree with Emanuel? Were they consulted before Rahm popped off?”"

Read it all here. (h/t NRO - Rich Lowry).
