Skip to comments.Rahm Emanuel: 'I would like to run for mayor' (Surprise, surprise ;)
Posted on 04/19/2010 8:20:40 PM PDT by STARWISE
Rahm Emanuel admitted he wants to return home and run for mayor of Chicago some time in the near future.
"I hope Mayor Daley seeks reelection. I will work and support him if he seeks reelection," the White House chief of staff told PBS's Charlie Rose in an interview. "But if Mayor Daley doesn't, one day I would like to run for mayor of the city of Chicago."
He added, "That's always been an aspiration of mine even when I was in the House of Representatives."
There were conflicting reports over the last few months about whether he actually wanted to run for the Windy City's top job.
Richard Daley is set to surpass his father as the longest serving mayor if he sees out his current term, which expires next year. Some reports suggest he plans to run again, which means Emanuel would be looking at a 2015 bid.
Emanuel, a former aide to Daley, also told Rose that he no longer was interested in becoming speaker of the House.
As President Obama prepares to deliver a speech in New York later this week that will attempt to align his administration squarely on the side of American taxpayers furious with Wall Street, his chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, met privately on Sunday night with some of the city's top investors.
Note that the Blagojevich trial starts
in June. Hmmmmm ......
AHA! I remember posting this as a prediction!
Of course, he only says “one day,” (in the future) and I meant when he left the WH.
Rom Emanuelle is full of shiite. Chicago would never elect a Jewish mayor and he knows it. Louis Farrakan casts a very long shadow in that town. The Central European ethnics don’t like him and I don’t blame them.
“Note that the Blagojevich trial starts

Please pass the popcorn...
He may actually have some feeling left for the nation of Israel and doesn’t like his fellow Marxofascists conspiring against it.
Well... I would think that’s possible, anyway.
Just another in a long list of criminal thugs.
Do we know them, or do we KNOW them ???
LOL .... heat’s getting hotter.
He’ll have plenty of time to run for mayor once Obozo gets his ass kicked to the curb in 2012.
>>Emanuel, a former aide to Daley, also told Rose that he no longer was interested in becoming speaker of the House.
That’s because it will never happen due to the tsunami in November. same ole excuse made by Stupak..
In his dreams. Maybe he could be something in jail where he belongs.
Mayor? Did I say Mayor? *woof*
Oprah's out. Tyra Banks is gone. Soon Obama will be the only Magic Negro around with not a Jewish face in sight.
It’s amazing and awfully funny too!
The perfect end to a perfect day
Rahm says "Hey Mayor, how would you like a job in the White House...oh, I don't know...how about...White House Chief of Staff, maybe? I understand that position may be vacant soon. But then, that would leave the Mayor's seat open in Chicago. I wonder who we could find to run for that office? Uhmmmmmm..."
Maybe Mayor of Hell. I’d vote for him.
With an absentee ballot, of course.
That’s why I think Chicago might be perfect for him. Maybe not so good for Chicago....
