PostSubject: Daly - Chicago Mayor - No Bid For Re-election   Tue Sep 07, 2010 7:34 pm

Long time Chicago Mayor Richard Daley announced Tuesday
that he will not seek re-election, a stunning decision that apparently
ends a political dynasty that dominated the city for more than a half
century and paves the way for Rahm Emanuel to chase his dream job.

The nation's third-largest city has been
ruled by a "Mayor Daley" for 42 of the last 55 years, beginning with
Richard J. Daley, who ran Chicago and its Democratic machine for two
decades until his death while in office.

Cook County Clerk David Orr said he did not
think anyone would have seriously challenged Daley if he had run for
re-election, but Tuesday's announcement means "the whole political
landscape changes enormously."

Emanuel, the White House chief of staff,
once told Fox News that if Daley, 68, didn't run in the February
election, he would likely throw his hat in the ring, raising the
possibility that his days in the White House are numbered.

"That's a job I really want," Emanuel once told Fox News' Bret Baier.

But Emanuel didn't offer any hints that he was still interested after Daley's announcement.

"While Mayor Daley surprised me today with
his decision to not run for reelection, I have never been surprised by
his leadership, dedication and tireless work on behalf of the city and
the people of Chicago," he said in a written statement.

White House senior adviser David Axelrod said Tuesday that Daley's announcement caught him and Emanuel by surprise.

"Both of us were a little stunned this
afternoon when we heard the news he wasn't going to run -- we both
strongly assumed he was. So we're just absorbing the news," Axelrod
said. But he wouldn't comment on whether Emanuel will run for mayor.

"Rahm...has a lot on his plate. He's got a pretty responsible job, and that's what he's focused on right now," he said.

Daley was first elected mayor in 1989,
following in the footsteps of his father, who died of a heart attack
while still mayor in 1976 at age 74.

During his tenure, Daley presided over some of the most dramatic changes in Chicago history.

He assumed command of the floundering
school system in 1995 and replaced entrenched bureaucrats with tough,
results-oriented administrators. Homework became mandatory, and the
"social promotion" of underperforming students was halted. Test scores
climbed steadily.

Daley also was the catalyst for a citywide
facelift. West Side slums were cleared, new green space was created, a
theater district came to life in the north Loop, and Navy Pier became a
colorful playground complete with boat rides and a giant Ferris wheel.

Critics have grumbled that in some ways
Daley's Chicago was run much as it had been under his father, who was
the boss of Chicago's Democratic machine for two decades. They pointed
to City Hall scandals and lucrative contracts for the mayor's friends
as well as chronic corruption and police brutality cases.

Daley's constituents came to know him as an
intense, nervous figure who was never fully comfortable on the
speaker's platform. As with his father, the current mayor's rhetoric is
at times tangled.

He nevertheless remained popular, winning elections by overwhelming margins.

The fourth of seven children and the oldest
son of Richard J. and Eleanor "Sis" Daley, Richard M. Daley grew up in
the 11th Ward near the former Comiskey Park, an area of blue-collar
bungalows and two-flats, home to many city patronage jobholders as well
as judges, prosecutors and police officers.

Politics was a part of family life. A
brother, William Daley, would become U.S. commerce secretary under
President Clinton and another, John Daley, is a Cook County
commissioner.

In 1972, Richard M. Daley was elected to the state Senate. In 1980, he was elected Cook County state's attorney.

In 1983, Daley finished third in a mayoral
primary marred by racial antagonisms. U.S. Rep. Harold Washington
defeated Daley and Mayor Jane M. Byrne and became the city's first
black mayor. In 1987, Washington died of a heart attack, and Daley won
a 1989 special mayoral election.

At a news conference, Daley said he had been thinking about his decision for several months and that "it just feels right."

"In the end this is a personal decision, no more, no less," Daley said.

The mayor's wife Maggie has been battling
breast cancer. She has made a few public appearances but does not talk
publicly about her health.

Daley did not take questions after making the announcement Tuesday.

President Obama issued a brief statement on Daley's announcement.

"No mayor in America has loved a city more
or served a community with greater passion than Rich Daley," Obama said
in a written statement. "He helped build Chicago's image as a world
class city, and leaves a legacy of progress that will be appreciated
for generations to come."

The decision immediately raises speculation about whether the 50-year-old Emanuel will make a move for the seat.

Emanuel, a one-time Daley adviser and a
Chicago native, said in an interview in April that if Daley did not
seek another term, he would like to run for the office.

"If Mayor Daley doesn't (run), one day I
would like to run for mayor of the city of Chicago. That's always been
an aspiration of mine even when I was in the House of Representatives,"
Emanuel told PBS' Charlie Rose.

Emanuel was an Illinois congressman until
he resigned to take his current White House post. A few days later,
Daley said the two are friends but didn't endorse Emanuel as his heir
apparent.

"I think there are many people out there who would be great mayors," Daley said.

White House spokesman Bill Burton teased
Emanuel for entertaining the idea, saying that a Daley re-election bid
was all but certain.

"It's something that many kids in Chicago
dream of growing up to be a mayor, so it's one of the great jobs in
American politics," he said. "But it's just an ambition -- when I was a
kid I wanted to be an astronaut. (White House Press Secretary Robert)
Gibbs probably wants to ride in the Tour de France. That doesn't mean
we're all leaving the White House."

Others who might launch a bid for the job
include Illinois Reps. Luis Gutierrez and Jesse Jackson Jr., who said
in a statement that he expects "numerous candidates, but only a few can
mount a serious bid for mayor."

Just hope there isn't a lifetime pension they have to pay out to get rid of him and the followers! Maybe someone can come along and rectify some of the things that have been screwed up for so long now!

Don't worry, there always is.

Maybe now with the SCOTUS ruling on the 2nd Amendment and all they will get a Mayor in that is not such a Marxist. But the saying goes. "How Chicago goes, so goes Illinois"

All the losers in Chicago will probably vote another dictator in so they can continue to live off what few workers tax dollars they can rob.

Let's hope this is a turn around for them! It is time they got better than what they have had!

I agree. For the many Conservative, Constitution loving Americans their. I agree.
But there are far more liberal slugs and roaches in Chicago than there are Patriots.

Maybe one of theh biggest wheels had fallen off the buggy now. Sometimes it only takes one major thing such as this to happen and the whole darn thing will crumble. The other small cases being decided in the wake of the McDonald case have begun to erode the anti-gun strongholds that are left and each victory only reinforces the beliefs that our country was founded on. Chicago is in the crosshairs and in the coming months you will see the anit-gun groups strengths erode. This I hope is just the beginning of the end for those folks!

One must think "Why all of a sudden this slug is getting out of his rule tyranical of the city?" Has he contracted some deadly desease? Or has someone given him an ultimatum. Did someone finally got enough on him for him to be indited for some of his unscrupulous dealings? What ever it is, good to see him finally gone. I hope only the best for that city and it's inhabitants.

I can't think of any of Eastwood's movies I haven't liked. Even the cheap westerns he turned out en masse! This was one of the best though!
