The Mayor of Rahmaland Makes the Cover of TIME

First, Rand Paul appears on the cover of TIME, now Rahm Emanuel.

TIME writes:
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel left his job as White House Chief of Staff to run a broke, violence-plagued city. He has been dubbed “Mayor 1%” by his enemies for cozying up to corporations, and the “murder mayor” for closing 50 public schools, some of which were in gang-troubled neighborhoods. In this week’s TIME cover story, editor-at-large David Von Drehle writes that Chicago “has budget problems and crime problems, problems of inequality and racial division, problems of mutual suspicion and failing schools, of high unemployment and aging infrastructure. And behind it all, special interests so deeply entrenched you need spelunking gear to go after them.” Yet in spite of all those daunting challenges, Emanuel tells Von Drehle, ”This is the happiest I’ve ever been in public life. I’ve always wanted to be mayor.”
