Rahm Emanuel was quoted this week as saying he would like to run for Chicago mayor one day.
And former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was taped at one point saying Jesse Jackson Jr. "wants [the job of Illinois senator] badly and desperately."
Well, Emanuel and Jackson don't have to wait to see themselves in those offices if they try out an experimental search tool called Google Squared. While building a table of Chicago mayors, Google Squared includes Emanuel. It does the same for Jackson in its table of Illinois senators.
(Google doesn't pretend it has all the bugs worked out of its new tool and warns, "you might encounter some hiccups while using it.")
Illinois Gov. Quinn, referring to Emanuel's interest in being mayor, said in Chicago, "I thought the world was enough for him."
Among other Chicago mayors listed by Google Squared are Hillary Rodham Clinton and Donald Rumsfeld.
Maybe the world isn't enough for them, either.
