A Giant Died...

(cross posted at www.dailykos.com)

30 years ago, a giant of the Democratic Party died.  Hizzoner, Mayor Richard J. Daley died of a heart attack at his doctor's office.

I admit, I don't know much about Mayor Daley.  He died before I was even born.  But, living in Chicago, I can see his legacy everywhere.

He was a giant in his time.  His power extended far beyond the borders of Chicago.  He had power everywhere from his home neighborhood of Bridgeport, on the city's near southwest side, to the White House.  He controlled the City, the County, heck the Governor, in many ways, was no better than a partner in state politics.  He exerted great influence over the national party.

Great story on Fightin' Dem John Laesch

This week's Chicago Reader has a feature story on the Fightin' Dem taking on Denny Hastert.  He's quite the guy, driving around knocking on doors to spread the word.  Unfortunately, he's not getting the kind of support from Obama and Durbin that Duckworth is getting in her race.
