The Man Behind the Man Behind the President

A fascinating, if overly hard boiled, story about the guy behind the buy behind Barack Obama. Illinois state Sen. James DeLeo has long-standing ties to Rahm Emanuel and Chicago Tribune reporter John Kass is asking questions that are sure to fuel the right's obsession with Barack Obama as a product of the Chicago Machine.

Choice quote:
"Consider this mathematical equation: Jimmy/Rod + Jimmy/Rahm = Happy Rod, Jimmy and Rahm. Get it?"

Obama needs to make sure this doesn't turn into his White Water Investigation: a sordid tale featuring a cast of hundreds from the Chicago corruption syndicate that provides years of crippling insinuation but results in not a single charge of malfeasance on the President's part.
