I'm sure he has snorted those little pills he loves. Not much difference in my book.

Default Will Rahm Emanuel win by a landslide?

Why is Emanuel a better options than the other candidates, and why would he leave cheif of staff to be mayor? Though both are great positions of course.

Are they stupid? More people will vote for Rahm once they find these things out!
I think these two sorely underestimate how many Chicagoans are against illegal immigration.

“You have been, Mr. Emanuel, shown to be directly involved with killing the Dream Act” to help children of illegal immigrants, former Sen. Carol Moseley Braun told Emanuel.

“The fact of the matter is Rahm referred to immigration as ‘the third rail of politics,’ and he advised his colleagues in Congress not to pursue immigration reform,”

Does anyone else seem to think CMB slightly dumb in the head? Whenever I listen to her during the debates, it gets awkward. It's like someone should tell her, "shhh, be quiet when the other adults are talking." She always has this weird smile too. Creepy.

I was hoping for a fun mayoral race just like the old days. Carol Mosely Braun's ''crack-rant'' was great...looks like Rahm Emmanuel is the perfect personality fit for Chicago...

Senior citizens spook Rahm and Rahm insults them!:

"All right, you guys wouldn't want to sit down would you?" the former North Side congressman turned White House chief of staff turned mayoral candidate pleaded as dozens of seniors crowded him and a piano ditty incessantly blared from speakers.

"I feel like I'm at a small little place in upstate New York with this music. … I feel like I'm doing an opening act for somebody."
