The Most Important WikiLeaks Revelation Isn't About Hillary Clinton
"What John Podesta's emails from 2008 reveal about the way power works in the Democratic Party" in case you were still wondering: Froman conferring with Podesta in re: Rubin's instructions. (Wikileaks email ID# 6684) "Harry Hopkins was his model".

(Explaining the joke: Notorious Rbt Rubin might or might not be remembered 60 years from now as Obama's "Brain Trust." Suppose that depends on who ate services in '33 --reward for service-- but didn't trust him much. Hopkins agitated for various titles, one of which, low priority WPA admin, got him high visibility but marginal political capital. FDR also rewarded Harold Ickes with PWA admin which tightly held purse strings from Hopkins' ambition to higher office as well as the CCC and utilities projects. The admins despised each other, but Hoplins got the good press. (Arthur Schlesinger, First New Deal). The current generation scarcely recalls either man or the NIRA back-biting but revere the face of "shovel-ready" recovery.)
