The latest scuttlebutt about who will replace Rahm Emanuel in Congress centers on Fortieth Ward Ald. Patrick O’Connor, Mayor Daley’s floor leader. He sounds perfect for the job.
“O’Connor noted that the field is getting more crowded by the day,” the Sun-Times reports, “setting the stage for an open Democratic primary election.
“‘We, as political leaders in this congressional district, would be pretty poor leaders if we allow it to dissolve into something like that’.”
God forbid we let this dissolve into an open primary!
“This is an opportunity for all of us to be together, work together and come up with a candidate we can all support.”
Yes. Don’t mind us. You guys decide and let us know.
