It's almost Christmas, so our friends are sending their cards to Whispers. Just today, we received one from Rahm Emanuel, President-elect Barack Obama's incoming chief of staff. It's pretty cute, featuring his kids and wife in a summer setting. Better yet, he tells us that, "In the spirit of the season, a donation has been made to the Greater Chicago Food Depository." No, that's not code for Gov. Rod Blagojevich's Senate pay-to-play account.
