Oh no, say it ain’t so — there is word that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is considering a run for the U.S. presidency. Um, can we say bad idea? Lloyd Grove reports that Emanuel “is said by well-connected Democrats to be considering the idea of running for president if Hillary Clinton opts out of the 2016 race.”
“The 53-year-old Emanuel, who is busy raising money for his 2015 reelection campaign in the Windy City, has had discussions both over the phone and face to face in the past month with Democratic Party donors and fundraisers about a possible White House run, according to sources.”
The Chicago Sun Times is reporting that Rahm Emanuel, President Obama’s former Chief of Staff, was “was scrambling to throw cold water” on the bit of news.
