In a report in today's Chicago Tribune, the following:

"He has been equivocal on the subject in the past, but on Monday night White House chief of staff and native Chicagoan Rahm Emanuel made no bones about it: He wants to be the mayor of Chicago.

"I hope Mayor [Richard] Daley seeks re-election. I will work and support him if he seeks re-election," Emanuel told Charlie Rose on the host's PBS talk show, in an interview broadcast Monday night. "But if Mayor Daley doesn't, 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."

In January, after The Washington Post reported that Emanuel, a one-time Daley aide and longtime supporter of the mayor, was mulling a mayoral run, Emanuel did not deny the report. He instead said in statement that he was "100 percent focused on the job at hand: serving President Obama as his chief of staff."

Hey, Rahm old fellow, do you actually think that all the skeletons in your closet will remain sequestered therein? Do you honestly think that all the people you have stabbed in the back en route to your present job as Chief of Staff to the worst president in American history will commend you to the people of Chicago? I suspect that, with you in it, any future campaign without Daley in the mix will be a bloodbath and you will be the lucky recipient of most of the blood-letting. Karma's a bitch, fella, and you're about to get a full on demonstration of that fact!
