Can Rahm Emanuel make it cool for men to wear tights? Barack Obama's pick for chief of staff has received a lot of attention in the past week for his ballet dancing past and the dance community is hoping the man nicknamed "Rahmbo" can give ballet a more macho image. "We're very proud to know Mr. Emanuel was a dancer," said Kelly Ryan, spokeswoman for the American Ballet Theatre. "His accomplishments have been so immense, and in a small way, he's put ballet on the world stage." [NY Daily News]
