Interesting Mayor Daley comments re: Chicago voters, Rahm Emanuel and POTUS.
Source: Chicago Trib Clout Street (John Byrne)
Curious title: “Obama endorsement wouldn’t swing race in Emanuel’s favor”.
Think about it.
barry could be responsible for Democrats losing control of Congress as well as the entire state of Illinois – US Senate, Springfield, Cook County, Chicago.
Explanation of why barry won’t be endorsing Emanuel until after the general election (mayoral candidates don’t have to officially declare until Nov 13).
DALEY: [Obama] can endorse anyone he wants. You’re not going to tell the president what to do, I’ll tell you that, no one will do it.
Translated: Nobody should have to tell him what to do – he should know.
Rahm Emanuel advice:
DALEY: I don’t give people advice. To me, nobody gave me advice when I ran in ’79, ’89. No one ever came up to me and gave me advice.
DALEY: The people will judge. The voters are much smarter than the press give them (credit for), I just want to make sure you understand that. The people understand issues and understand candidates….listen to people, and you’ll find out what people want. And people want good schools.
