John Kass: The Chicago, and Daley, Way

Early history? You mean like Thursday, when the federal grand jury indicted the former business partner of the mayor’s son over that city sewer contract deal?

The Daley boys are adept and skillful and ruthless in the pursuit of power and treasure. The family has controlled Chicago and Cook County for more than half a century. The Daleys are without doubt the best politicians on the planet.

Obama knows this. And because he wants to get re-elected in 2012, he’ll keep the Daleys around him.
