The first Jewish man in the White House might be just a few years away, according to press reports in the United States.
Will Rahm Emanuel really run for president?
He said absolutely not, no and not going to happen.
However, rumors persist that the Chicago mayor is considering a bid for the White House in 2016.
This week the most popular U.S. political leaning website splashed a headline across its site that said that two informed sources said that Emanuel will throw his hat in the ring if Hillary Clinton decides not to seek the highest office in the country in 2016.
If Clinton runs, she will most likely clear the field, the sources argue. But if she is not among the candidates, Emanuel, will likely join Andrew Cuomo, Joe Biden and Kristen Gillibrand in seeking the White House. Emanuel is a legendary fundraiser who has experience in almost all levels of government, including the White House.
