Emanuel Vows to Emerge as Humbler Chicago Mayor in Next Term

A thankful Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel presented himself to bleary-eyed South Side commuters today, embodying the humble, sweater-wearing politician who told voters in television ads that sometimes he rubs people the wrong way.

“The Second City gave a second term and a second chance,” Emanuel said at the 95th Street El stop, the morning after defeating Jesus “Chuy” Garcia, a Cook County commissioner. “I went through the paces, and I think I’ll be a better mayor for it.”
