    Jodi Kantor, New York Times, authored The Obamas. The book provides details of interactions between Rahm Emanuel and the President. The book describes more of the 'eat your peas' style of leadership by Mr. Obama.

    According to the book, when Mr. Emanuel tried to resign and Mr. O replied "I'm not accepting it. Your punishment is that you have to stay here and get this bill done. I'm not letting you off the hook."

    So there.

    Too bad Geitner wasn't the one told to leave.

    I like the eat-your-peas (or squash) metaphor. :)
