Rahm Emanuel - Hypocrite

Tom Elia at The New Editor remarks on something I had no idea about. Emanuel went from being a Clinton aide to earning millions in a few years as an investment banker. After racking up a net worth of $9 million in three years, he ran for Congress and soon was chosen as the head of the Democratic Congressional Comapaign Committee. Now, he's criticizing Republicans for trading for influence for private gain. Why does he think he, a former ballet dancer and campaign aide got a job at a prestigious investment banking firm and was put in a position to earn those millions?
