    I respect Rahm Emmanuel. Seemingly, he is one of only a handful of Democrats who isn’t afraid to face up to the Republican-SS Propaganda, Lies and Hate Establishment. Throughout history, strength coupled only with high intellect has always won over Lies, Deceit, Propaganda, Racism and Bigotry (ie Dem versus GOP).

    Terrific news! It's a shame Mr. Emanuel had to participate in last week's hearings. His detractors asked such foolish questions.
    Go Rahm go!

    Was there EVER any doubt that corrupt Chicago politics WOULDN'T win this one? Chicago and the State of Illinois are a mess and will never be any better as long as they keep these sorts of people in government positions. I'll bet he keeps this office until the day he dies, then passes it on to his kid. I guess after living under the daly Dynasty for so long, the dummies Chicago know and expect no better.

    Good. This leaves it to the people of Chicago to decide if they want him to be mayor. If the people think he is qualified and don't mind that he was mostly in Washington the past two years then so be it. If they have a problem with his absence from the city they can always vote for someone else. It would have been unfortunate for some commission to make the decision instead of the citizens.
