Chicago scandals have left the good mayor in need of a hug:
“I wish I could be, but I’m not … on top of everything. I’m not Superman. … I don’t have eyes in the back of my head. … You delegate responsibility and, when it happens, you correct it. You can’t dwell on it. … It happens in the public sector. It happens in the private sector. When it happens, you try to do the best you can,” Daley said.
“People give me a public trust. … When [corruption] takes place, I get mad at myself. You get depressed. You get upset. But you lift yourself up. … It’s been a difficult, tough year. But you don’t collapse. You don’t fall down and stay down. … Just because there’s a challenge there and an obstacle, you don’t collapse and give up. … You keep your vision strong. … These challenges I have today, I’m gonna overcome those challenges.”
