Seamanship Quotation

“In political activity, then, men sail a boundless and bottomless sea; there is neither harbour for shelter nor floor for anchorage, neither starting-place nor appointed destination.”

Obama’s Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, claims his heart is in Chicago

“In an electoral drama befitting a jurisdiction where scandal and public service often go hand in hand, his campaign to become the city's (Chicago) next mayor was at risk Tuesday amid claims he has not lived there recently enough to qualify as a candidate. . .
In a legal brief filed before Tuesday's hearings, Mr. Emanuel said he maintained his Chicago bank accounts and used his old address to vote via absentee ballot in primary elections last year. . .  
He also left ‘a number of treasured possessions, including his wife's wedding dress, the clothes his children wore home from the hospital after they were born, his children's artwork and report cards, his and his wife's diplomas, gifts he and his wife received for their wedding, and a large number of books."

As important, did he leave his brass knuckles at the White House?
