The president is a true politician. Today a reporter at the press conference asked him if he had had been making calls on behalf of Rahm Emanuel. Emanuel is running for mayor of Chicago. It was a yes/no question. The president responded by saying Emanuel did not need for him to make calls for him. So he did not answer the question which to me is an admission. The truth is the president needs to stay out of this local fight. Emanuel has a commanding lead and he will probably win so it would be to the president’s advantage to stay out of the race. In 2012 the president is going to need all the Democrats in Chicago to support him and that includes the black community. The black community is split on who they are supporting for mayor so the president simply needs to sit this one out.
