CHICAGO--Over at North Park Village--once the Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium--a campus with senior citizen housing and city recreation facilities--and its own flock of honking geese--Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Ct.) and her husband, pollster Stan Greenberg watched mayoral hopeful Rahm Emanuel campaign on Monday morning.
Emanuel did not point them out to the crowd and they stood by a wall unnoticed, taking in a slice of Chicago politics. Emanuel was introduced by Ald. Margaret Laurino (39th). Also there: State Rep. John D'Amico (D-Chicago)
Greenberg is Emanuel's pollster. Emanuel is longtime friends with the couple--he lived for a time in their basement apartment in Washington. Asked, got no predictions from Greenberg re the mayoral race.
Joining Emanuel at the event were two of his three kids, son Zach and daughter Ilana.
