"At a news conference this morning, mayoral candidate Rahm Emanuel fielded questions on the Arizona shooting that left Representative Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz) in critical condition.

"That's not intended for this moment, it doesn't apply to this moment," he said.
"Gabby is a friend, I recruited her to run for Congress," Emanuel said. "I started Congress on Your Corner at grocery stores - to be directly in touch - for direct access [with constituents].""
