Just heard that on the radio.

He's about to pull a Pete Carrol...GTFO before shit REALLY hits the fan. The Captain is bailing on his sinking ship.

Not 2012 unless Obama as a 'problem' that causes him to stop being President. I could see Daley trying in 2016 though... (or sliding in as VP if Biden steps aside for some unannounced reason in the future)

He will be indicted on something within 1 year of leaving office.

Why would he do that?
If he is in office when we get him on the corruption charges us taxpayers are on the hook for not only the millions in superstar prosecution but also the millions in his superstar legal defense.

So many under him have gone down that he doesn't have too many friends left. The others have gone to the white house and they can't help him from there.

And there is no way he could ever be president. The rest of the country thinks he is a wacko.

Carroll was also the first person to jump into my mind when I heard about it and it also looks like ol' Reg is going to have his Heisman taken away from him, lol.

Modest estimates indicate the pension problems alone in this state are at over 200 billion short... If you re-adjust the expected rates of return down from 8%, the amount short is even worse.

There's some food for thought.... and it should make you shit a brick when you stop and think about it.... especially when you compare that fantasy land figure of 8% against the T Bill

Who the hell would want that job?? Let us see, run one of the worlds biggest city's that is broke as hell from mismanagement, bribes and corruption (much of it under his name). Even without the corruption you gotta think that the city cost more run than it brings in. Hell I would be bailing from that job too. Bye Bye King Daley.
