No matter who is elected the next Chicago mayor--the days of Ald. Ed Burke (14th) being the major powerbroker on the City Council may be over; that's the headline from Monday's debate between Rahm Emanuel, Carol Moseley Braun, Gery Chico and Miguel del Valle. The Chicago Sun-Times Fran Spielman and Abdon M. Pallasch story is here. Mayor Daley left Burke alone, basically, in order to avoid any kind of confrontation with another Southwest Side pol. Burke backs Chico for mayor.
