  • Does this look like the face of someone who doesn’t want to run for president?

It seems like everyone has an opinion as to whether Mayor Emanuel wants to run for president, including Mayor Emanuel himself.

He says he does not want to run for any other office than the one he currently occupies. Which should put the matter to rest, since Mayor Emanuel’s presumably the foremost authority on what Mayor Emanuel wants to do.

Except no one believes him. And so the speculation rages.

I, for one, think he wants to run but won’t as long as there’s a chance that Hillary Clinton’s in the race. There’s no way Rahm Emanuel runs against the Clintons.
