Politics: Chicago’s “Best Game”

Best Game in Town

Dear Readers,

So, at the link above you can listen to a Friday afternoon piece from WBEZ, our Chicago NPR affiliate, about the political doings of that busy week on the Chicago political front.

It was interesting for me, and I hope it will be for you, to listen to the other guests, Audra Wilson, a former deputy press secretary to then-U.S. Senate candidate Barack Obama, and Scott McPherson, a Republican strategist, along with host Steve Edwards, talk about what’s bemusing and befuddling the chattering classes.

Mostly, it seems that there’s no clear path to victory for any candidate on the hustings right now.

It was fun to participate, if a test of one’s wits, to stay on-point in the middle of a very busy and noisy restaurant!

Thanks to Steve Edwards, WBEZ Program Director and show host, for inviting me.

Sincerely,

Rebecca
