Run, Rahm, Run

WaPo reports that Rahm Emanuel will be found eligible to run:

CHICAGO — Former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel cleared an important hurdle in his bid to be Chicago mayor early Thursday when a hearing officer recommended his name appear on the February ballot, even though Emanuel spent much of the last two years living in Washington working for President Barack Obama.

Lest you worry that such a ruling by a lone and lowly “hearing officer” would carry the taint of illegitimacy, know that it would still need to be approved by the august Chicago Board of Election Commissioners. That confidence-inspiring body could rule as early as Thursday.
