Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel won't have much time to celebrate his victory as Chicago's new mayor.
He reportedly dropped the "F-bomb" in bailout negotiations with the United Auto Workers during the U.S. auto industry meltdown two years ago, one book author claimed. Now, labor proponents in economically troubled Chicago are left to wonder what things will be like for them under mayor-to-be Rahm Emanuel.

Western security and intelligence officials monitoring the unfolding events in Libya are closely watching Libyan Foreign Minister Musa Kusa, the former Libyan intelligence chief and close confidant of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.
The United States said Wednesday it was considering sanctions and other means to pressure Moammar Gadhafi's regime to halt attacks against Libyans as violent clashes spread throughout the country. President Obama planned to speak publicly about the situation for the first time later Wednesday or Thursday.

The campaign to replace Mayor Richard M. Daley has unfolded unlike any in Chicago's history and almost certainly will end with a mayor unlike anyone who has run City Hall before.
