Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley’s decision not to run for a seventh term next year is sparking speculation White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel might try to fill Daley’s shoes. Emanuel represented a Chicagoland-area congressional district before President Obama picked him to manage his staff after the 2008 election. It certainly would be a study in contrasts — the tough-talking, blunt-instrument-politics Rahm-bo taking over for Daley, a consummate big-city mayor whose focus has been more on providing city services than ideological warfare. That’s not to say Daley is a shrinking violet, just that managing the country’s third-largest city is best done with minimal bombast. Who knows, if Emanuel runs and wins, maybe it’ll force him to develop a touchy-feely side.
