Is it possible that Rahm Emanuel isn’t particularly upset that Charles Ramsey took himself out of consideration for TopCop after demanding so much money (and maybe a home, Sneed says)? Our panelists  think so.  It gives him credit for going after a high-profile catch, but now frees him to look at some prospects within the Department who might be more easily accepted by the rank and file.

Also this week: the amazing collapse of the Banks machine in the 36th Ward, the ascendancy of Mayor Sawyer’s son in the family’s historic 6th Ward, and the election of the guy who looks the most like a Chicago Alderman – Tim Cullerton.

Guests: Political consultant Delmarie Cobb, Chicago magazine’s Carol Felsenthal, and Nadig Newspapers’ Russ Stewart.
