While we huff and puff over whether term limits should stay at three or go back to two, Chicago got the shocking news that its mayor, Richard Daley, will step down next year. Daley, who was first elected in 1989, and his father have been mayor of Chicago for 42 of the past 55 years. White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel has expressed interest in the job, saying earlier this year, "I hope Mayor Daley seeks reelection. I will work and support him if he seeks reelection. But if Mayor Daley doesn't, one day I would like to run for mayor of the city of Chicago. That's always been an aspiration of mine even when I was in the House of Representatives."
