Michelle Obama 'Distressed' About Power Held in IL by 'White Irish Catholic' Families

AP

By Lynn Sweet, Chicago Sun-Times
When Michelle Obama worked in Mayor Daley's City Hall in the early 1990s, she was "distressed" by how a small group of "white Irish Catholic" families -- the Daleys, the Hynes and the Madigans -- "locked up" power in Illinois.
Mrs. Obama worked in the Daley administration between Sept. 16, 1991, and April 30, 1993, according to City of Chicago personnel records. She was hired by Jarrett, then Daley's deputy chief of staff.
Kantor writes Mrs. Obama "disapproved of how closely Daley held power, surrounding himself with three or four people who seemed to let few outsiders in -- a concern she would echo years later with her own husband.
"...She particularly resented the way power in Illinois was locked up generation after generation by a small group of families, all white Irish Catholic -- the Daleys in Chicago, the Hynes and Madigans statewide."

The news of the death of Maggie Daley has sparked memories from
many who knew her or just saw her handle the role of Chicago's first lady with
warmth and grace.

 

"Michelle and I were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Maggie Daley.
Maggie was an extraordinary woman who dedicated her life to public service.
While she will be sorely missed, her initiatives on behalf of Chicago’s youth
live on as national models for how to create environments for children to learn
and grow outside the classroom," President Barack Obama said in a statement late
Thursday night. "Maggie’s commitment to the children and people of Chicago was
surpassed only by her devotion to her family. Tonight, our thoughts and prayers
are with Mayor Daley, Nora, Patrick, Lally and the entire Daley family."

 

"Tonight we grieve for the Daley family," current Mayor Rahm Emanuel said in
a statement. "Chicago has lost a warm and gracious First Lady who contributed
immeasurably to our city.

"While Mayor Daley served as the head of this
city, Maggie was its heart."

Emanuel said her "most treasured role was as
a wife, mother, and grandmother."

"Our hearts go out to Mayor Daley,
Nora, Patrick, Lally and the rest of the Daley family," Emanuel said. "Just as
Maggie will remain a constant presence in their lives, she will remain a
constant presence in our city. Like Chicagoans everywhere, Amy and I will always
hold her in our hearts."

"Whether you knew her personally or were among
the countless more who loved and admired her, all of Chicago will remember
Maggie for the grace and dignity with which she served for twenty-two years as
First Lady," he said.

 

The former first lady proved resilient in the face of the disease, and her
friends and admirers noted her ability to rise above her illness.

 

"In the city of big shoulders, her grace and charm made our town a very
classy place," said Father John Cusick, a good friend and priest at their Old
St. Patrick's Church. "I really feel for Rich. He will miss her so much. Being a
public family, they were able to be a private family, too. What a great person.
May she have eternal rest."

 

"I think we were all inspired by her courageous and faith-filled life, and
her battle against her disease was an inspiration to all who suffer from cancer.
She's now in God's hands and her suffering is over," Ald. Edward Burke, 14th,
said. "Her legacy to the city and to her family is one of courage."

 

Gov. Pat Quinn said in a statement that Illinios lost a "great treasure" who
"treated Chicago residents like family and served up hope and inspiration
wherever she went."

 

"The ever-gracious Maggie was devoted to her family and her faith. Maggie had
a servant's heart, especially for children," he said. "Our thoughts and prayers
are with the entire Daley family. The people of Chicago and Illinois now mourn a
great loss, but we remember the legacy of grace and compassion that Maggie
left."

 

"Maggie was a person of extraordinary grace and strength. She set such a
wonderful example both in how she lived, and how she faced the end of life,"
said David Axelrod, Daley's longtime political media adviser and currently
senior campaign strategist for President Barack Obama. "Right until the very
end, she had a light about her that warmed everyone around her."

 

U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin issued a statement that said:

 

“Chicago and Illinois have lost a great and caring woman. Those of us whose
lives were touched by her warm smile and inner strength will dearly miss Maggie
Daley.

“Loretta and I have lost a dear friend but feel blessed to have
traveled part of our life's journey with her and Rich. We remember last St.
Patrick's Day at Old St. Pat’s when Maggie’s struggles were quickly forgotten as
her grandkids, dressed in their finest green, scrambled in the church pew to see
the Shannon Rovers piping up the center aisle. She and Rich were beaming with
the joy that loving parents and grandparents live for.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Rich, the Daley family and the many who
will join us in mourning Maggie's passing.”

Authorities have arrested a man they claim was plotting to detonate pipe
bombs, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Sunday night.

The Manhattan man's intended targets were U.S. military personnel who had
served in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as U.S. postal facilities and police
stations.

The suspect allegedly learned how to make a pipe bomb after reading Inspire,
the al Qaeda terrorist network's English-language online propaganda, recruiting
and training magazine, according to the source. He is believed to have been
acting alone.

The suspect had been under surveillance since May 2009 and "made even some of his like-minded friends nervous," New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly told reporters Sunday
