Anyone! Please!

Any Woman

Anyone but...

Anyone else

Anyone, really.

Anyone. Seriously. ANYONE.

Anyone who can put an English sentence together correctly.

Literally anyone

Anyone at all

Anyone who is not a Daley

Anyone outside of the Daley machine

William M. Daley

Anybody with a brain

Anyone who is breathing

Any Dog Catcher will do.

Any Republican

Someone who actually cares about people and not money

Someone who would beat him

I don’t care if it’s a well-trained circus seal as long as SOMEONE beats him.

No one

No one … unless it’s another Daley … having a Daley as mayor is as Chicago as saying pop

No one, he should be Mayor for life.

Anyone except Rahm Emmanuel

NOT Rahm Emmanuel!

Jon Stewart or anyone other than Rahm

The ghosts of Mayor Daleys past.

Daley’s unborn son Richard Daley

Does he have a son?
