I forgot about this. I did see a story about this not too long after the election and wondered why I didn't hear about it before we all voted. I believe the Republicans were fine with Obama winning because they didn't want to be stuck with and blamed forever for this economic mess. There is no other explanation for why they did not bring out the Chicago connections in any great detail. There was plenty there including this very article to reveal Obama's political style. Chicago machine politics has indeed come to Washington DC!
