Rahm Emanuel Said to be Considering Presidential Bid

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel "is said by well-connected Democrats to be considering the idea of running for president if Hillary Clinton opts out of the 2016 race," Lloyd Grove reports.

"The 53-year-old Emanuel, who is busy raising money for his 2015 reelection campaign in the Windy City, has had discussions both over the phone and face to face in the past month with Democratic Party donors and fundraisers about a possible White House run, according to sources."

But the Chicago Sun Times says Emanual was "was scrambling to throw cold water" on the report.
