Maggie Daley passed away on Thanksgiving Day. She had been the woman behind former Mayor Richard M. Daley during his 22 years in office. As sitting Mayor Emanuel said, "While Mayor Daley served as head of the city, Maggie was its heart. " The soft, caring core to a powerful machine. We could learn a lot from Maggie Daley. The position of first lady is not something that we the people vote for, but she's just as important as the official second-in-command. She's the woman who's there when times are rough and stresses are high.

It's yet another homecoming for Michelle Obama. The first lady will return to Chicago on Wednesday, this time to tackle the subject of youth violence. In a luncheon hosted by Mayor Emanuel and members of the city's business community, Obama will support a campaign to raise $50 million for programs that aid at-risk youth. When the murder of 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton thrust Chicago into the national spotlight, Obama attended the victim's funeral in Chicago, and days later invited Pendleton's parents to the State of the Union address.

The NATO summit is almost upon us. And while leaders from all over the world will huddle in McCormick Place, solving the world's problems, I am most excited about something that will be happening outside the convention center: On Sunday, first lady Michelle Obama is scheduled to lead spouses of NATO dignitaries on a tour of the Gary Comer Youth Center on the South Side. I was, frankly, surprised - yet pleased - to hear Obama is planning to show off my side of Chicago. The only problem: They're visiting only one place, when there's so much more the South Side can offer.

Now that the 2012 election is over, Fox News is licking its wounds, and our radical, socialist, Islamic, ineffectual tyrant president has won a historic second term, I have one suggestion for Illinois Democrats: Start printing the "Draft Michelle Obama" T-shirts now. Standing with my pit stains and aching back at McCormick Place on Tuesday night, it struck me that the loudest applause line from President Obama's terrific speech was the shout-out to...

Under a proposal introduced by Mayor Emanuel on Wednesday, the foundation would be able to temporarily use office space at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center in Bronzeville for $1 through 2016. Pendleton, 15, a King College Prep student who performed at inaugural events for President Obama in Washington D.C. in 2012, was fatally shot on Jan. 29 at a park about a mile from the Obamas' Kenwood home.
