Hope springs eternal that Obama may be smart enough to realize that his current accomodationist trajectory is a ticket to one-term obscurity; I wonder, was Obama canny enough to see this, and orchestrate Mayor Daley’s stepping down to get Rahm out of the White House without any blood on the floor? I’m guessing Rahm is the kind of guy to wreck the place on the way out if he was forced to leave.
If Daley winds up in the cabinet in a few months, we’ll have our answer.
