WATCH: Chicago Mayor Hopes Illinois Will Be Next to Legalize Gay Marriage; Works Out 7 Days a Week

Looks like Obama’s former Chief of Staff has evolved faster than his former boss. Rahm Emanuel used to get all shy when it came to addressing gay marriage even conversationally. Maybe it’s a White House protocol not to mention the M-word.

Stepping up his game to match the equally-dashing Andrew Cuomo, Emanuel, now-Mayor of Chicago, hopes Illinois will follow New York and legalize gay marriage. He talked to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer about the work he did to pass civil unions in the state and how he foresees a move in the direction of same-sex — here comes that word again! — marriage.

Interestingly enough, the follow up question during the CNN segment was about Emanuel’s body. The foxy mayor flashed a devilish grin as he revealed that he worked out 7 days a week! No shirtless photos are available to prove his claim, though. And trust us, we searched.

      @Tallskin: Amen. Or news outside the big gay cities which usually only happens when every other news outlet jumps on a story of a gay bashing or suicide or something like that.

      He’s a currupt creep. May as well be attracted to a married guy/ a cheater, a closeted guy or gift giver.

      Rahm Emanuel is a slimy weasel. He’s said to be the adviser who instructed the idiot Obama to throw the LGBT community under the bus regarding marriage equality.

      I don’t care how many times a week he works out or if his dick hangs down to his knee, he creeps me out.

      @alan balehead-brickman: Helpful hint: read the article before you post. If you’re not sure what it’s about, then look at those new-fangled things called “tags” that follow the post — they’ll give you a clue about what the topic is about!

      Many octogenarians such as yourself grapple with memory issues. Do talk to your PCP about your difficulties so s/he can discuss ways to slow the progression to full-bore dementia.

      She said, he said – exactly who said he was the adviser? Got credible sources? Or is it imaginary arts and crafts time for those with Obama issues.

      And who said Obama has thrown the LGBT community under any bus at all? Seems to me he has helped gay people make some significant strides in the last couple of years. Or, at the very least, he hasn’t tried to retard any advances made.

      @OrchidIslander: Blindly follow along with the 2party charade and never see the Wizard behind the curtain keeping the dumbed-down masses enslaved to the robber class if you wish. The “Rahm Emanuel & Obama Member of Chicago Gay Man’s Club” story is mostly testimony accounts with no solid proof. However it’s pretty evident most politicians have sexual shenanigans going on in the background.

      Worst it’s clear how the 2party system pits people against each other over hot button ideology issues to distract from the enslavement that occurs.

      But if you prefer sarcasm… nothing to see here folks.

      Sorry, but thats where your agenda was exposed.

      The White House specifically said there would be NO DADT repeal at that time, however the community went up in arms, and then Pelosi FORCED the repeal down the White House’s throat. Even so, Obama inserted additional hurdles to eventual repeal.

      The White House DOJ was also defending DOMA comparing gay couples to incest etc… when told to stop defending it, the White House lied and said that the President HAD to defned all laws. It was pointed out that most ex presidents had not only chosen not to defend certain laws, but had even joined in lawsuits against certain federal laws they found unconstitutional. Additionally, Gay donations dropped significantly. Finally the DOJ, after it’s lies were exposed, decided to stop defending the law that they claimed the HAD to defend.

      So Obama happened to be president when these things happened, but they were forced upon him. Granted he eventually signed the Repeal which is great, but lets not pretend the guy would have done anything without massive pressure.

      @An Ella Fan: Rachel Maddow and David Axelrod.

      Credible enough sources, pumpkin? I know how difficult it is for you O-Bots to deal with reality but some of us actually believe it’s in the best interest of our community to hold this president’s feet to the fire. Next?

      Wow, I responded to a post, and merely pointed out a few areas where Obama had to be forced into dealing with the gay rights bills Pelosi was pushing etc…, now swearing and yet my comment was screened out.

      Other than supply two names that you deigned not to do on your earlier post, you’ve yet to tie specific quotes or specific anything from either person to support your assertion, chickpea.

      I’m hardly an O-bot. I believe there is a lot more work that needs to be done, and prodding for more action is fair game. However, unlike you, I’m not willing to turn a blind and dismissive eye to accomplishments made along the way.

      You’re absolutely right and if it appears that I didn’t Pelosi her due, or any due at all I stand corrected…

      There’s been a lot of that lately. I suggest that people with things to say say them elsewhere.

      Actually, the problem is that Rahm’s likely going to slash important budgets, oppose unions and push for Charter schools:
