Rahm Emanuel in Chicago Tuesday for Richard J. Daley Global Cities Forum

| 1 Comment

WASHINGTON--White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel--whose ambition is to one day be Chicago mayor--will be in Chicago Tuesday to appear on a panel for the Richard J. Daley Global Cities Forum, named for the late Chicago mayor who is the father of the current Chicago Mayor, Richard M. Daley.

Setting the record straight: Emanuel's Chicago homecoming--taking place a week after his first public admission of interest in a mayoral bid--is a coincidence. Emanuel was booked for the panel months ago, I'm told by his spokesman--long before Emanuel said, on the record last week to Charlie Rose that one day he wanted to run City Hall.

The global cities forum is co-sponsored by Chicago Sister Cities International and the University of Illinois at Chicago in conjunction with the World Organization of United Cities and Local Governments.

Others at the forum:

Motorola co-CEO and CEO of Motorola Solutions Greg Brown
Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley
Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoƫ
Mexico City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard
Merchandise Mart Properties, Inc. President and Chairman of the University of Illinois Board of Trustees Christopher Kennedy
Amman Mayor Omar Maani
Johannesburg Mayor Amos Masondo
Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter
Washington Post Writer's Group Columnist Neal Peirce
The Boeing Company Vice President of Global Corporate Citizenship Anne Eleanor Roosevelt
World Bank Vice President for Sustainable Development Katherine Sierra
Istanbul Mayor Kadir Topbas
PBS NewsHour Senior Correspondent Judy Woodruff

For those of you who work for the Obama regime, you would do well to start building your exit strategy now. Leave, punch out now, jump-ship. Do it while you still have a modicum of credibility because when everyone else starts for the exit there you will be holding the bag for the big nO. Looking like the smartest person on the short bus.
