The millions of dollars CNN is spending to plaster Emanuel’s giant mug on billboards and hundreds of CTA buses all over Chicago and in other cities is fishy.
This statement from “Chicagoland” creator Robert Redford is fishy too: “Look, I have a high regard for Rahm Emanuel. It is not an easy job. To manage a city like Chicago with so many disparate parts to it is not an enviable task. I think that he is as qualified as anybody, but boy, it’s like being the president of the United States.”
There are those words: Rahm Emanuel and “President of the United States.”
Former White House advisor Dick Morris made this prediction at a Chicago press conference in January of 2011: “I’ve had enough of charismatic aggressive go-getter Chicago politicians who rise in national politics. I think Rahm [Emanuel] wants to be Senator and wants to be President and I’d like to nip that in the bud.”
When he spoke of “nipping that in the bud,” Morris was referring to Emanuel’s first run for Mayor of Chicago. The veteran political strategist has been around long enough to know that, for a political carnivore like Rahm Emanuel, the City of Chicago was always just a stepping stone, a footnote.
