  •  That's a silly statement, unless you believe (0+ / 0-)

    that Rahm doesn't care about keeping the Mayor's office.

    The real election is the Democratic primary, but there are always candidates for the job.

    And, if things got bad enough, who knows what doors might be opened?

    •  All he has to do is keep the machine happy. (2+ / 0-)

      Then he runs more or less opposed.

      And seeing as he's a big wheel in the machine . . .

      the same way he got elected mayor the first time: a shit-ton of yard signs and key endorsements. Only this time, as the incumbent, he'll have yet another advantage: no one will have the guts to run against him.

      That's the Chicago way -- turning every election into a self-fulfilling prophecy of more of the same.
