Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is said by well-connected Democrats to be considering the idea of running for president if Hillary Clinton opts out of the 2016 race.
The 53-year-old Emanuel, who is busy raising money for his 2015 reelection campaign in the Windy City, has had discussions both over the phone and face to face in the past month with Democratic Party donors and fundraisers about a possible White House run, according to sources.
Its unclear who raised the subjectEmanuel or the donorsand the mayors press secretary initially didnt offer clarity on who said what to whom Hours after this story was published, however, Tarah Cooper emailed denying that the mayor "raised or entertained" the subject of a White House run. She also sent a photo of Emanuel's scrawl on yellow legal paper vowing "not ever" to run "for another office" and reiterated his longstanding pledge that, in his words, he's "not interested. Not going to do it. No. I'll do it in Hebrew: lo." (Emanuel, the son of an Israeli doctor, had dual citizenship until he was 18.) Others expressed skepticism that any such discussions between Emanuel and donors could have been serious...

Seriously, would he be the second half-black-claiming-to-be-black-but-really-half-white to run for the white hut?
Well........DC is officially “mafia”, now. So, He’ll fit right in (in my book).
Please run. Even the Jew hating Jews may have a problem with him.
Yay right, twinkle toes...
Given the state of the republican candidates, I think those people could run a tree stump and win.
Lord have mercy on this country. And we thought it couldn’t get worse!
Rahm sees Karl Rove getting more involved w GOP....and sees a chance to become President as Rove/Soros picks another GOP loser
The Case ofThe Missing Finger.
How did the plie-ing Mayor lose his finger?
Rahm used to brag he lost it in an Israeli tank while in
the IDF. Then he musta found out American citizens lose
their citizenship by serving in the army of a foreign country.
B/c then he said he lost it in a sandwch shop---
when a cut got infected and necessitated amputation.
We got no paper trail---so I guess we'll never know (/cackle.)
RAHM WROTE THAT? MAKES YOU WANNA LAUGH OUT LOUD---b/c that's the Chicago con game---how the hardened criminals in Chicago politics gull the people. And to think Obama brought all them Chi/con artists to Washington.
ADDENDUM Emanuel is the son of an Israeli doctor and
had dual citizenship until he was 18. Rahm was most
proud of his part in the Israeli/Palestininan handshake
on the WH lawn in the Clinton Admin.
Here's Rahm shedding a tear at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem.
The family went to Israel to have the son (right) bar mitzvahed.
Here he is on the US Capitol steps at Obama's 2009 inaguration.
What woulda happened if he did THAT at the Wailing Wall (shudder)?
