Rahm Emanuel has been reelected as mayor of Chicago.
Outside of Chicago, among conservatives, Emanuel is often regarded as an arch-progressive.
But inside the city, Emanuel was regarded as the more conservative candidate. Particularly as regards fiscal matters.
In the media, the big question to ponder is: Has Emanuel been humbled? Perhaps in some sense he has been. But most of the Chicagoans that I know are less worried about the man's attitude and more worried about the city's future cash flow.
Visions of bills
coming due soon,
