Just a normal Monday walking to the L at Roosevelt and I noticed a lot of TV crews and police and I am hoping something good is happening at the Roosevelt stop – I see all of the “fuss” is over Rahm Emanuel. He was out and about bright and early in the South Loop and not down on the sidewalk but actually up on the platform shaking hands and talking with CTA commuters. It was certainly a nice sight, in my opinion.
Who knows how the race for Mayor will play out but in my view it sure looked like a lot of people were very happy to meet and shake hands with Rahm. As I waited for the train longer, many more TV crews came up the platform and there were several reporters asking the commuters questions. Seems like the race for Mayor will be
an interesting one….

Rahm Rolls into the Sloop to Kick off Listening Tour
Many South Loop residents were surprised yesterday when they went to our local L stop and saw a big scene. The reason, Rham Emanuel's listening tour for his "potential" mayoral bid kicked off in the Sloop.
There was a ton of press and random people following him around and here is what one Slooper wrote in:
Indeed. It's been awhile since the city had a wide open race for mayor and it should be interesting.
