Obama Doesn't Need to Endorse Rahm



    During a press conference in Washington D.C., President Barack Obama took a break from talking about budget cuts to talk about Rahm Emanuel.

    A reporter asked if Obama would like to take a moment to officially endorse Emanuel for mayor of Chicago.

    “I don’t have to make any endorsement,” the president said. “He seems to be doing just fine on his own. He’s been very busy shoveling snow out there. I never saw him shoveling around here.”

    Emanuel is running a television ad that shows President Obama giving him a send off from White House.
