    If you want to be partisan, you might want to start with stories that don't make your own party look bad.

    We're not half as dumb as you seem to think.

    •  Odds of a Repub taking Chicago: nil (3+ / 0-)

      The odds of a Green takeover of Chicago politics are about as dim.  

      If Chicago remains as a misgoverned city stumbling from weakness to weakness, you can bet that it will be used as proof that Democrats do not know how to govern.  That will hurt us nationally.  

      Chicago's Democratic machine is also showing the inability of corporatist Dems to govern a modern, diverse city.  Perhaps honest-to-goodness progressives would help out.
