Rahm at press conference: "I agree with Karen Lewis..."
Karen Lewis
"It's just that simple, it's not rocket science, it's negotiations. Nobody's going to be happy, completely happy, with the outcome," she said. "They're going to have to give a little, we have to give a little. That's what contract negotiations are, but we're doing fairly well." -- Chicago Tribune
Forrest Claypool on stalled negotiations with CTU
"Our priority is not saving money by a week or two paying teachers. Our priority is to allow the current union negotiation process to come to a positive conclusion, and so buying time is the prudent thing to do in that regard." -- Tribune
 Lobbyist on Rauner's failed Chicago takeover attempt
"It's like taking kids away from the junkie mother and giving them to the alcoholic father." -- POLITICO
Sheriff Tom Dart
 “Lutheran provides essential services to the very people government is supposed to care for in times of distress. For the Governor to allow these programs to wither way is simply deplorable. Without Lutheran’s diversion programs, my Cook County Jail population will rise, costing taxpayers significantly more in both the short-term and long-term.” -- CBS
Kent Redfield
“Frankly, as much of a public presence as [Diana Rauner] had in the last year, she might as well have been in the Witness Protection Program.” -- CBS

Greg Sargent, Plum Line blogger
Sanders is not arguing that the sheer force of persuasion can win over Republicans to compromise, a key element of Obama’s promise of transformation. -- Washington Post
Sarah Palin (after the teleprompter froze)
 'The man can only ride you when your back is bent,' she said, as audience members looked at each other quizzically. 'So strengthen it! Then the man can't ride you, America won't get taken for a ride, because so much is at stake.' -- Daily Mail
