The Chicago Way

We'll see if Mr. Obama brings Chicago-style politics to the White House. I hope not...but hey, this could be a repeat of the Clinton years in some ways.

The article is an interesting one, looking at the Chicago politcal machine, however the end feels a bit rushed. Mr. Engber offers a possible metric for measuring the "corruptness" of the city, then says it may not be an accurate way to measure. Instead of just offering some other methods for determining "corruptness," why not do a little more research and actually employ his own suggestions? Then he could have (probably) backed up his assertions.
