No, not that one — I’m talking about the real “first black president” — although he may soon be stripped of that title.

This Chicago mayoral race should be fun. It’s barely gotten underway and already Bill Clinton is kinda-sorta being called a racist:

Two candidates for mayor told former President Bill Clinton to cancel plans to campaign for their front-running rival, Rahm Emanuel. Congressman Danny Davis accused Mr. Clinton of trying “to thwart the legitimate political aspirations of Chicago’s black community.”

Former U.S. Sen. Carol Moseley Braun said it would be a “gaffe” by the former president on a par with comments Mr. Clinton made during the 2008 Presidential primary season. Some supporters of Barack Obama claimed Clinton had belittled the then-Illinois State Senator by comparing Obama’s campaign for President to Rev. Jesse Jackson’s quest for the White House.

Somehow Slick will manage to successfully endorse all three and blame the racial strife on Rush Limbaugh.

    It`s getting to the point that I can`t be sure any longer The Schlickmeister really is black ! Say it ain`t so !

    It`s also humorous that Rahm It isn`t having an easy time sliding right onto the mayoral ballot !

    IF Rahm makes it onto the ballot AND wins the election, I`m going out on a limb here, it will be confirmation of "rigged" Chicago politics ! (strong limb – no danger of breakage)

    You left out one mayor, Ray "School Bus" Nagin of New Orleans – most leftest ! And now that I think of it, NY`s Bloomburg is taking the cake for mostest loony leftest leftist !

    Oh, pffftt, who could forget "The Ray Nagin Memorial Motor Pool"!

    I know nothing about Detroit politics but I'd imagine Doug would weigh in similarly? In talking w/ the wholesalers, Nuveen, Power-Shares etc. some of the firms have "reverse commuters".

    In these instances, the founder has no desire to live in the City so he hq's the firm out in Wheaton, IL or Naperville etc. and all the young sales guys want to live close to Wrigley Field, or close in. More chicks I guess? But once they marry and settle down their wife doesn't want them around all the 'other' stunning Polish girls!

    Out to the Burbs they go. I suppose the trend had been that 'most' of the single college-edu. gals wanted to work in the City.., until..? So… Single + Suburbs = Sucks.

    We may have started something, " Whose city has the mostest leftest leftist mayor" ?! Wars were started over less !
