Chicago Mayor Daley hears from Oprah Winfrey

CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago Mayor Richard Daley's decision to not run
for another term prompted a call from someone else who's famous
name is synonymous with the nation's third-largest city: Oprah
Winfrey.
Winfrey was among the notables who have called Daley since his
announcement Tuesday that he would give up the job he's had since
1989.
Like Daley, Oprah is giving up her current job, too. She's
ending her Chicago-based daytime talk show this season after 25
years.
Daley said Wednesday he also heard from President Barack Obama,
former Vice President Al Gore and White House advisers David
Axelrod and Rahm Emanuel.
Emanuel is Obama's chief of staff and has said he would like to
run for Chicago mayor one day. He's reportedly weighing his
options.
