Comment: Rahm Emanuel, the tax dodging, screaming, knife-wielding, son of an Israeli terrorist, who wants a domestic draft for Americans to serve the state – given this history – Rahm and Chicago are made for each other.
Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley‘s surprise announcement today that he would not seek a seventh term in 2011 immediately set off speculation that White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel would enter the race.
“In the end, this was a personal decision, no more, no less,” Daley said in Chicago Tuesday. “I’ve been thinking about this for the last several months…It just feels right.”
Emanuel, in a statement released this afternoon, made no mention of his interest (or lack thereof) in the job.

“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,” said Emanuel.
A senior Obama Administration official said Emanuel is likely to run for the post. “I’d be shocked if he doesn’t run,” the official said.
