Ask Geoffrey: Chicago's Old Passenger Rail Stations

"Chicago's old passenger railroad stations for decades acted as the city's front door where people from all over the country arrived seeking a better life or just the thrills of the big city. Jeffrey bayer takes us back to the golden age. Rail travel in this week's ask geoffrey. Hey geoffrey good to see you paris all right so we have a question from larry gardner of skokie he says. Could you do a story on the old train stations that once stood in downtown chicago. Well of course we can. There is as you mentioned. The the late nineteenth century the early twentieth century this was the golden age of rail travel when people traversed the country on trains. And of course right at the center there at the hub of it all was chicago. It's hard to believe. But as recently as the nineteen sixties there were six passenger train stations in downtown chicago today. All passenger trains that come into the city from beyond the suburbs. Go through the last one standing union station which is now owned by amtrak. It's designed including this now. Demolished concourse was right along the river there and the colonnaded main building which is still standing right behind it. In this picture of those things recall the grandeur of rail terminals in those glory days of designed to wow the traveler of the way many airports do today met with. Certainly the goal of another neoclassical designed terminal. Check this one out owned by the chicago and north western railway you know classical buzzards and it stood at what is today. Ogilvie transportation center which is operated by metra. That station included ornate concourses. Waiting rooms even dedicated spaces for barbers and hairdressers. People traveling across the country The chicago north western railway traced its roots to chicago's very first railroad. The galena chicago union established back in eighteen forty eight. By chicago's first mayor actually will be ogden. Certainly the golden age of travel there and then another key player. Of course you hear references pop culture all the time the illinois central oh absolutely That country that company billed itself as the main line of mid america. It was a dominant player. Both in passenger and freight rail their main passenger terminal was called central station once stood just just south of grand part right on the lakefront there. The railroad built this mammoth terminal in one thousand nine hundred three in part to accommodate the influx of visitors. That were expected for the world's fair that year you'll notice almost all of these terminals have clocks or clock towers so people hurrying to catch trains didn't have to fumble around for their pocket watches that of course they had watches it. All central station was also an important point of entry for many african americans who came to chicago from the south during the great migration with like so many of its contemporaries central station met the wrecking ball. In this case in the mid one thousand nine hundred seventy s amtrak diverted there trains to union station but there is still an active platform. Eleven street serving the metra electric line and i gather it's the inspiration for that residential development around their central station. Which i believe. Richard m daley lived there for a while and not to be confused with grand central station. Of course right. That's right and yes. We had our own grand central station. here in chicago. Not new york's wasn't the only one ours was at harrison and wells on the western edge of the loop. Read along the river for about eighty years. It was just north of if you know we're river city's development is today Traffic declined grand central after world war. Two this photo with the board of trade there in the background was taken in nineteen sixty seven at the end of the stations life. It was torn down in nineteen seventy one and this is one of several places in the city. were abandoned. Railroad land is being redeveloped during construction of the new development on this old site buried. Stones from grand central station were actually unearthed and they've been re purposed for a river walk. One chicago train station of actually is still standing So in addition to union station is dearborn station. South loop although of course. It's on train station anymore. You can see its clock tower visible all the way from the north side of lube looking south down on dearborn but what happened to the top of that clock tower. Take a look at this early photo. And you'll notice it once had this huge wooden flemish roof on top of it but in one thousand nine hundred twenty two. It caught fire. Look at these incredible photos from the scene as crowds gathered. Luckily firefighters were able to save the building. But but not that tower roof. I the nineteen seventy s. Most of the train. Shed was demolished but the facade and portions of the terminal were preserved as part of a mall. Serving printers row by the building is still called dearborn station. In fact peres as you just pointed out. Many old stations live on in the names of new developments of the one. You mentioned central station. Just south of grand park word. Mayor daley used to live and then a new apartment building at harrison and wells is using the grim central name

"Here and advances on W GM Now seems things seem to be much more in order at this moment than when I drove in this morning. When I drove in this morning, there are two things that were very unusual that I noticed on the way to work. And they all seem to be sort of cleared up and cleared out. And everything seems to be okay. They were the man was dangling from the Trump tower. A 14 story there. Ah, he hung on for or was it the lower floor? I don't know. It seems so higher, but he was there for like 13 hours overnight. Saying that he wanted to talk to the president. He was attached to a rope and he had a knife and he's going to cut that rope if they didn't get the president on the phone for him. What police cleared that scene up, and I think everything ended pretty well there. That's that's the good news there. The other thing I noticed on the way in here, Wass The Batman scene. They're cool. They were filming over here Grand Park this weekend, which is kind of it's kind of wild to see filming return in that scale. Does Chicago area again It's kind of cool. I saw the trailers and that kind of thing. There is garbage. They're picking it all up. And grand Park looked pretty good on my way in. I think there was some traffic issues weren't there, Mary with all that whole thing, Just put it over the weekend, the weekend more closures around Grant Park driven like 8, 15 or so and it was they were picking it up. It seemed, you know, smooth over there. Did you see the food trucks that they have the food out? I saw some trucks. I couldn't tell their food. I saw the restroom trucks. They were still there because those should be the last to leave. Yeah, I agree with that. Basically, it was a good call. So that was happening and all that. So you know, it's kind of all resolved. It's kind of some normalcy with the filming. It's just fun, You know? Yes. Isn't it? One house? All those people that are employed through that? You know, the makeup people, the costume people just all the you know the actors. It's just great. That is great. I didn't see anybody I thinkit's with. Who's in it know that big ones weren't there? I forgot. I was in it. They weren't rather Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz. Um I didn't. There's mothers too, but I mean, they were. I don't think they were here for the scenery here is reporting this morning that they weren't out there. Yes. Her dean, so that that's that's the situation there yet. Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, among other big names, but very cool to see all that happening. It's like we're Gotham City once again here in Chicago. Happy about that. Okay? Something so that all that all ended Well, happy about that. But I want to say something. I'll say I did this weekend at our house that I told you I was going to do and we did it and we're gonna try to post this on the text line. Is it up yet? Peter, we'll do. We'll do it right. We're about to do it, so check it out. And posters to 312981 1700 we made we made one of those tubes that you shoot the trick or treating, you know candy through. No way We did it. Oh, my gosh. You should see this. I got to say I'm so proud of my eight year old Gabby. I mean, I went to Menard's Saturday morning. First thing One of our listeners told us they still have these PVC pipes and I went there and they actually were out of the 6 ft pipe. But they had a five footer and then I bought like a little extension, like an elbow. You know, kind of manner. Yeah, I'm sure the little things in my life, but I bought them so little duck down into the bag like an arm. Exactly. So it doesn't just shoot into their face to decorate it. Oh, my gosh. Did we decorate? Ah, home, Mary, I I wish there were contest. I swear. This was like We had so much fun doing this, like a surprising amount of fungus. I went to join fabrics. I picked up some of the fun stuff and I picked up some stickers and we put stickers on it. We rolled it in or letters shiny notes like orange shiny, glittery fabric. We ram us, okay? Yeah, it was a mess way had the little Dustbuster thing I was like That you chickened out. It was cool that I honestly was so fun. You know what we're doing is making lemonade this whole year, right? And this was like a lemonade making moment. Very proud. And it's so topic doesn't like fall apart genuine possibility. Absolute possibility. That's a total possible and we're sort of you're practicing with it. Now. Some Candies they're not going to because I think it's only a four inch pipe because I'm telling you the 6 ft five inch pipe that was gone at Bernard's, but they still they have They have a lot. You know Popcorn balls. They won't quite not right. You can't do that. Apples. You know, people like to eat that fruit. I'm not one of those houses. No, but those you know these nutrition, Sam, people don't want fruit on Halloween. You don't They really don't. You know the parents like it, But then, you know, but there's really I like the Butterfingers. That's what I eat. When my kid brings it home. I expect Geiger grabbed those baby roast Butterfingers. Yep. Once years once a year, I mean Too much to ask. The Tribune has a how to Article two. If you want to check that out, because they go through the different ways you can make these And there's a guy who posted some on Facebook I saw over the weekend he made his zip line like a zipline to zip line. The candy did two kids and I thought, Wow, that is one really out Array. GIs Lee Great dad. It's really cute. He had like a ghost, and the ghost kind of care is the candy across the zip line to the kids. Very elaborate. Very cool, And that's his socially distanced answer to Halloween. But check out mine and posters. 312981 72 100 was very fun. Other thing we did this weekend we continue our countdown to Halloween were watching Halloween movies. And we've seen so many of them. So maybe Ghostbusters. We've done what has a corpse bride. We've watched the Adams family. We've seen goose bumps think there are three of them. And then last night, we watched one that I thought was going to be absolutely horrible. It's a new one out on Netflix. It's called, Have you heard of this? Love and monsters heard that one knows a kid thing. Well, I You know, it's not because it's it's Ah, Here's the deal it so it's like giant insects and critters. They become like supersized and they take over Earth. They wipe out 95% of humanity and then everybody. The survivors. Go underground and live in colonies. It sounded horrible. Sounds like, why don't we want this is horrible. I don't want to see the stupid movie, but I sat on the couch and oh, my God. It was so engaging. I really thought it was so fun because there's like a love story. There's a real story and it's like you just get I was drawn into this. It was so fun. I mean, there's those crazy scenes with the big What is it? Oh, it's a millipede! Oh, my gosh! What now? It was that part of it. But there was, you know, was the true story behind the whole thing, And it was really getting and then I looked this morning 91% audience score. Unripe tomatoes. 91% 0, so people are liking it, Mary.

Not gonna read that The city has ordered cops to stand down the city's accounts report in solved Cat self soft caps. Now that changed superintendent decided to let the police suit up for this. The city has refused to issue body cameras to cop station downtown and not heard that, but I never I never disagree that they weren't preplanned the anarchists for lack of a better professional riders criminals.

"Minutes here before we go to news. But what is what is coming up? On the other side, we've, we've kept people busy. We've kept some ears busy this morning, but we still got an hour to go and lots to do on the program going twelve thirty. The other side of news, we're going to be talking with a couple of other gold star family members as well, as we're going to be talking with the CEO and founder of the Chicago-based organization leave no veteran behind. That's ally Williamson. So lots to do many, many conversations ahead. Yeah, it's been I mean it's amazing how fast the times foam by, and we have some great gusts as well. And. You know what the thing that, you know, you made me think about was how we talk about people that, that pass away in service, and so many keep it with them when they come home, and they're fighting, maybe some team in some mental health issues and the suicide epidemic that probably brought up in the ruck March that tries to honor as well as bring connect veterans back, so that they don't have they have a community. They don't have as much to deal with. But how many do we lease after the war to suicide not necessarily go star families anymore, but it was affected by their service. So thinking about those folks, I think that's a really interesting topic, right? Because it is, it's, it's I don't wanna see it's a gray area because I think that makes people sound invisible who are not. But it it's, it's such a thing that I don't think we could overstate it. I don't think we could talk about it enough possibly, and certainly not too much, because there is a segment of the veteran population that, that perhaps, the direct impact is not there in combat. But it's, it's soon after it's the it's struck. Ogling to return home, then and we hear these stories that are just heart-wrenching of what happens after in that reintegration process that so that's so scary and just to underscore, it is eleven thirty AM by tomorrow at this time twenty we'll have taken their own lives. Take a minute to think about that. By tomorrow. At this time, twenty veterans, we'll have taken their own lives. And as you just pointed out, the wounds are unseen, so many of these wounds are on seeing some of our because they've been wounded physically, but the mental wounds at the carry with them are devastating to the population as you can just statistics. So much of what we're talking about today's we're sharing all the different stories and the different types of stories that go towards Memorial Day as ever, we pick a topic and start talking about it, and it becomes complicated and nuanced. And there's a lot there. So we'll pick this conversation up backup a backup on the other side of news. If there's someone you'd like to honor today, give us a call three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred we'll do our best to get everyone on the air. But right now it's eleven thirty. Here's news with Steve Bertrand. This Memorial Day, mayor Lightfoot is attending a ceremony in downtown in grand park to honor those who have fallen we will continue to follow that through the day today. The state legislature is inaction, a house committee takes up legalized gambling later. The full house could take up an abortion Bill and North Korea's denouncing US national security adviser, John Bolton as ignorant a hardliner and a warmonger that's after Bolton's criticism of the north recent short range missile testing Bolton told reporters that it violated you and resolutions, President Trump didn't go that far.

"The night that he won the night that he won. I was actually in Ohio. I was like fell asleep in the car because I've worked so hard. But how did it feel that night? I was exhausted. I was so tired. We gone out that day. My daughter came with us we flew to Indianapolis for one campaign. Stop Justice show people. He was still on that day of the election, working hard, and we had been running like full out. And my daughter said, well, this isn't bad. It's one stop wiser so hard, and I was like, no, you don't understand this is election day, we've been really working hard, and sadly his grandmother had died that just the day before our two got so close, and and and had not made it, and so it was kind of bittersweet in that way. But we were preparing for this rally in grand park, hoping for the best and one of the funny stories, it just shows you kids out of the mouths of babes with the Obamas left. Their home to go to the hotel where we waited for the return. So driving down lakeshore drive. And and it's packed. Right. And so then they get to the hotel. And then when it's time to go to grand park everybody who was in the hotel left earlier. So we could get to grandpa again fingers crossed. And I'm on my way to grand park with a busload of supporters, and we hear that he's one. And so, of course, the bus goes up in uproar, and then I get to grand park, and I decided to wait backstage to see him. Now, they come from the Hyatt hotel towards grand park. And by that point. He's the president-elect, right? Not a car on the street because secret service kicks in immediately. And there is no traffic. Emily said daddy. I'm so sorry. I don't think anybody's coming to your party. Shows you how kids are she was so protective of him. It's like, I'm so sorry. There's nobody there. He goes. I think they're going to be a few people there, and we get the grand park and lo and behold our million people there, and you know, any of you know, you guys take your weather for granted November in Chicago. When it's above sixty degrees. You're on a good night. And this was like early seventies low seventies. And so I'm standing backstage. And I'm thinking, what can I say to my friend to capture how I feel and I was searching for words, and I'm not usually at a loss for words, and I saw him come up the steps to the riser, and he's walking towards Manny starts out about as far as the back of this room. And I'm like, something broken come to mind. Something brilliant, come to mind. I couldn't think of what to say literally, not a word came out of my mouth, and he came over. And I guess he couldn't think of what to say either. We never said a word. He hugged me, and I hugged him, and it was like squeeze him and tried to fight back, the tears and that. And I'm glad actually now because I would've probably not so the exact right thing. And it's better to just have the emotion that's left unsaid at a time like that. And what a beautiful moment, and the fact that there was everybody in grant park felt the way we felt in Springfield day, only with a few more people jubilant excited. I mean, the cameras were on folks who are in crying hugging. Perfect strangers. I was a beautiful moment amazing moment, I was sleeping the car after he's I I didn't hear the whole speech. But I was like I just heard him start speaking. And I was like this. We worked hard and Ohio. We were so happy, and we wanna hire a big state to win. Yes. And tell us a little bit. I mean, I know people are dying to hear about, you know, so many things that you accomplished in the White House. I mean, the work that you all did with a bomb hair, the work that you did with same sex marriage, and all of the just really challenges that had existed you guys over. Overcame these tremendous obstacles, despite the drama that you had to face when there was a change. And we won't even go there. But there was really some challenging times when yes so right halls White House, then and to the point where I remember you talked about in the book, there was a breaking point. But let's talk about that that moment where you felt that we did something amazing. And maybe not everyone else realizes how amazing it was. But you were like in the middle of it. You helped make it happen. The hard work you made it happen through this incredible process that can sometimes be very difficult to make anything happen. So that a little bit about that. That's true. I'll tell you one of the strengths. I think of his leadership is the ability to take the long view and recognize that you're going to absorb a lot of pain on your way to that long view. And that you just can't put your short term political interests ahead of what's best for the country, and perhaps your Ford. -able karaoke passing is one of the best examples where it was. An uphill climb seven presidents before him had tried to get it passed and failed. And he was just a terminal to get it done. And one of the ways that he would lift us up sometimes was with humor. And I remember one time we were really thinking that there's no way this is going to get done. It was a summer recesses and members of congress had gone home to their districts where coming for hearings and live Republicans were promoting this notion of death panels, and nobody actually knew it a death panel was, but you knew you didn't want one right? Just the name was perfectly diabolical name to say and we were in the Oval Office. And every all of his senior team were just so dispirited, and he asked one guy well, fill third way, Phil who is in charge of legislative affairs. What are we going to do? And so Phil said, well, if you're feeling lucky we can do this. And that and everybody else was like not gonna work that's disaster. And President Obama said you're asking me if I feel lucky he said, we're are we fill so. We're in the Oval Office. And he goes what's my name? And he says President Obama, and he said my name is Barack Hussein Obama, and we're at here. Yes. Go figure out how to get this done. And it just lifted us up, and we did get it done and the night that it was scheduled to pass. I went home with my same friend who I sat across the table with a back way back in the mayor's office who now was in the White House counsel's office. Susan sure, and we go home to watch the vote and Maud might have been there. I mean, we're just like relaxing from Chicago. We counted the votes long before they took place. And. Tell we rolled. And so it's late at night and Susan in our pajamas. We have a big bowl of popcorn glass of wine. And we're getting ready for the vote on the phone rings in. It's Katie Johnson. President Obama's assistant and she says President Obama like everybody who worked on the character. Come back, the White House, and we're like, we're good here. Popcorn. We're exhausted been working on it nonstop. I said we'll just we'll just watch it from here. And she goes President Obama would like everybody who worked on they Care Act to come back. So we're like, okay, we get it. We got it. So we get dressed and slipped back and have the celebration. And then he's like hundred people come on up stairs. And celebrate. Well, MRs Obama was out of town. That's the only way about and you could just imagine. What's happening ushers are like what a hundred people coming upstairs. What are we serve there in the freezer? Looking for pigs in the blanket or something and secret services like renegades on the move plus one hundred. This just didn't happen. But it was a unique night. Right. And then we get up there, and we're celebrating and he's saying everybody how important they were from vice president Biden to the most junior person on my staff who found this woman to McCann field who'd written a note to President Obama explaining her illness, and why affordable health insurance would be so important to her because she did what many families would do she played Russian roulette. She contracted cancer. She was treated for it. She went into remission, and then she was her premiums went up because she had a pre existing condition and she's choosing between holding onto her mom's childhood home and paying her premiums and she opted to not pay the premiums. And of course, the cancer came back. And so she became our spokesperson when she was too ill to talk about. Her sister showed up at her place and my staff person and wizard developed this relationship with Mathoma and her sister. And so President Obama said to her you're the reason this past. And he has her hands like this. And there's a photo of my book of him looking at this woman. He was like, oh my God. The president United States is talking to me. And he said it this is what I want. I want us to be engaging with the American people. I want them to be a part of what we're all about. And so that was a moment but later that night, and we're talking like, I am I'd had maybe two Martinez to confess to you. Because we're celebrating I sidled up to President Obama, and we were on the Truman balcony, my favorite place in the White House, and you're looking out on the south lawn and the Washington Monument is blinking in the Jefferson memorial behind that. And I said how do you feel tonight compared to election night 'cause you look so happy and he said. There's no comparison. He said election-night was just about getting to this night. And yes election night. I won. But tonight, the American people win, and that's what you're supposed to do. And I thought that's why I work for you. You know, and so many great stories in the book. But what I found quite interesting to is like really, you're relationship where you the president will call you or you'll just show up at his house and have dinner, and it's like, I'm going to go hang out with Michelle and Barack and you know, all of us here. We look at Michelle and Barack and we go, whoa. Wow. That's amazing. And you have this incredible relationship with them. And part of what you do in the book, which I think is great. Is you expose it in such a way that you're like, wow, they're they're human. All right. Well, your and your normal. But you're like incredible. And. And again, I I say that this is exciting because I it's like I'm glad you wrote the book because it's like I have this newfound appreciation and respect for all the incredible things. You did. I mean, we saw from afar in watching it on the news and rooting for you and get mad with you and everything else. But to just understand it better was absolutely fascinating. One of the questions from the audience is what do you make of the current tug of war between so-called establishment, Democrats and the far left and what's happening with the party. And what are we going to be able to do to to change that post Obama? Well, so this is what I think about the Democratic Party. It's it has a very big tent. And I think that's a strength of the party is that we embrace a whole range of ideas that fall under the democratic values progressive values, and the.

But let's talk about that that moment where you felt that we did something amazing. And maybe not everyone else realizes how amazing it was. But you were like in the middle of it. You helped make it happen. The hard work you made it happen through this incredible process that can sometimes be very difficult to make anything happens all of us a little bit about that. That's true. I'll tell you one of the strengths. I think of his leadership is the ability to take the long view and recognize that you're gonna absorb a lot of pain on your way to that long view. And that you just can't put your short term political interests. I had of what's best for the country, and perhaps your Ford -able karaoke, passing is one of the best examples where it was. An uphill climb seven presidents before him had tried to get it passed and failed. And he was just a Termine to get it done. And one of the ways that he would lift us up sometimes with humor. And I remember one time we were really thinking that there's no way this is going to get done. It was a summer recesses and the members of congress had gone home to their districts where coming for hearings, and the Republicans were promoting this notion of death panels. Now, nobody actually knew what a death panel was. But you knew you didn't want one, right? Just the name was perfectly diabolical name to say, and we were in the Oval Office, and every all of this senior tamer just so dispirited, and he asked one guy will fill third way, Phil who was in charge of legislative affairs. What are we going to do? And so Phil said, well, if you're feeling lucky we can do this and that and everybody else. It's not gonna work disaster. And President Obama said you're asking me if I feel lucky he said, we're are we fill? So we're in the Oval Office. And he goes what's my name? And he says President Obama, and he said my name is Barack Hussein Obama, and we're at here. Yes. Go figure out how to get this done. And it just lifted us up, and we did get it done and the night that it was scheduled to pass. I went home with my same friend who I sat across the table with a back way back in the mayor's office who was in the White House counsel's office. Susan sure, and we go home to watch the vote and Maud might have been there. But we're just like relaxing from Chicago. We counted the votes long before they took place and. How we rolled and late at night and Susan pajamas. We have a big bowl of popcorn glass of wine. And we're getting ready for the vote on the phone rings. And it's Katie Johnson, President Obama's assistant, and she says President Obama everybody who worked on the character come back the White House, and we're like we're good here. Popcorn we're exhausted. When working on it nonstop. I said we'll we'll just watch it from here on she goes President Obama would like everybody who worked on they Care Act to come back. So we're like, okay, we get it. We get it. So we get dressed slipped back and have the celebration. And that he's like hundred people come on up stairs. And celebrate. Well, MRs Obama was out of town. That's the only way that you can just imagine. What's happening ushers are like what one hundred people coming upstairs. What are we serve there in the freezer? Looking for pigs in the blanket or something and secret services like renegades on the move plus one hundred. This just didn't happen. But it was a unique night. And then we get up there, and we're celebrating and he's saying to everybody how important they were from vice president Biden to the most junior person on my staff and found this woman to McAfee who'd written a note to President Obama explaining her illness, and why affordable health insurance would be so important to her because she did what many families would do she played Russian roulette. She contracted cancer. She was treated for it. You went into remission. And then she was her premiums went up because she had a pre existing condition and she's choosing between holding onto her mom's childhood home and paying premiums and she opted to not pay the premiums. And of course, the cancer came back. And so she became our spokesperson when she was too ill to talk about. Her sister showed up at her place, and my staff person and Witter developed this relationship with Mathoma and our sister. And so President Obama said to her you're the reason this past. And he has her hands like this. And there's a photo of my book of him looking at this woman. He was like, oh my God. The president United States is talking to me. And he said this is what I want. I want us to be engaging with the American people. I want them to be a part of what we're all about. And so that was a moment but later that night, and we're talking to I am I'd had maybe two Martinez to confess to you. Because we're celebrating sidled up to President Obama, and we were on the Truman balcony, my favorite place in the White House, and you're looking out on the south lawn and Washington Monument is blinking in the Jefferson memorial behind that. And I said, how do you feel tonight compared to election night because you look so happy, and he said there's no comparison he said election-night was just about getting to this night. And yes election night, I won. But tonight, the American people win, and that's what you're supposed to do. And I thought that's why I work for you. You know, and so many great stories in the book. But what I found quite interesting to is like really, you're relationship where you the president will call you or you'll just show up at his house and have dinner, and it's like, I'm going to go hang out with Michelle and Barack and all of us here. We look at Michelle and Barack and we go, whoa. Wow. That's amazing. And you have this incredible relationship with them. And part of what you do in the book, which I think is great. Is you expose it in such a way that you're like, wow, they're human. All right. Well, your and your normal. But you're like incredible. And. And again, I say that this is exciting because I it's like, I'm glad you wrote the book because it's like I have this newfound appreciation and respect for all the incredible things. You did. I mean, we saw from afar in watching it on the news and rooting for you and get mad with you and everything else. But to just understand it better was absolutely fascinating. One of the questions from the audience is what do you make of the current tug of war between so-called establishment, Democrats and the far left and what's happening with the party. And what are we going to be able to do to change that post Obama? Well, so this is what I think about the Democratic Party. It has a very big tent. And I think that's a strength of the party is that we embrace a whole range of ideas of fall under the democratic values progressive values, and the comment that I have made an actually President Obama was talking about this in his European swing? The few. Days ago is. Spoken to several of the candidates who are either running thinking putting their name in the hat. And I said look a few things first of all have an affirmative action. Affirmative message for what you believe you will do as president. You have to earn the trust of the American people in its long robe where we are right now very early and the race at this point President Obama was down by about twenty points. So a lot will happen between now and the time we have a nominee next summer. So remember that the real prize winning the general election don't beat each other up so much in the process by the time, we get to the general election, whoever our nominee is bruised and beat up that we can't rally everybody behind this. So I think that's important. I also think that it's great to have big, bold ideas. And I and I support those ideas surly President Obama had them. Once you go from campaign, though to actually governing you have to appreciate that. You can't let perfect be the enemy of the good and your idea perfect isn't going to be everybody's idea. Perfect. And if he we let perfect be the enemy of the good perhaps would have gone for a public option for healthcare, and then twenty million people wouldn't have healthcare today. One to Americans wouldn't would be worrying about peak Sistan conditions. Young people wouldn't be able to stay on their parent's plan until they're twenty six women wouldn't be having access to preventive care. And so you have to once you're in a position to govern recognize it can't be my way or the highway. They can't be just my bold idea. And I'm going to turn blue until I get it. And I experienced being on the other side of that in the White House where the Republicans basically said we're just going to say no to everything President Obama wants to say, even if we meet them three fourths of the way, even if we. Make two hundred amendments to the Affordable Care Act trying to find some bipartisanship. We're just going to say, no, I don't think that that's ultimately why no it's not what's in the best of the country in the country. But as I have traveled this country over the last ten plus years twelve years now, I don't think it's what's in the heart of the American people. And so so many people that to my earlier point just shutting all institutions right now, you can develop your community in the palm of your hand. You don't really have.

We gone out that day. My daughter came with us we flew to Indianapolis for one campaign. Stop Justice show people.

It's one stop wise is so hard, and I was like, no, you don't understand this is election day, we've been really working hard, and sadly his grandmother had died that just the day before to cut so close, and and and had not made it, and so it was kind of bitter sweet in that way.

I think they're going to be people there, and we get to grand park, and behold beholder million people there, and you know, any of you know, you guys take your weather for granted November. And Chicago when it's above sixty degrees. You're on a good night. And this was like early seventies. I think low seventies. And so I'm standing backstage. And I'm thinking, what can I say to my friend capture how I feel and I was suiting for words, and I'm not usually at a loss for words, and I saw him come up the steps to the riser, and he's walking towards Manny starts out about his far as back of this room. And I'm like, something broken come to mind. Something brilliant, come to mind. I couldn't think what to say literally, not a word came out of my mouth, and he came over. And I guess he couldn't think of what to say either. We never said a word. He hugged me. And I hugged him and it was like squeezed him and tried to fight back, the tears and that and I'm glad actually. Because I wouldn't probably not so the exact right thing. And it's better to just have the emotion that's left unsaid at a time like that. And what a beautiful moment, and the fact that there was everybody in grant park felt the way we felt in Springfield day, only with a few more people jubilant excited. The cameras were on folks who are in crying hugging. Perfect strangers. I was a beautiful moment. Let's talk about that that moment where you felt that we did something amazing.

But as I have traveled this country over the last ten plus years twelve years now, I don't think it's what's in the heart of the American people. And so so many people back to my earlier point just shunning all institutions right now, you can develop your community in the palm of your hand. You don't really have to have a community geographically where you live. And I think that's a problem. I think social media contributes to it the polar at the toxicity in the air, but contributes to it, and I think we have to do is lift up the voices of the people who say this is my -firmative vision for our country. This is where I think we should go. This is why I'm qualified to do that. And I think those are the politicians I would like to see rise to the top. Yeah. And your book you had what you call a breaking point. When that situation occurred on a regular basis where everything that the president did to try and work with people was met with the opposition. So tell us how were you able to move past that why did have a breaking point? And I am pretty temperamentally even keel and similar to the president. I think his comes from Hawaii, you know, where everything laid back, and I didn't have that. But I just think temperamentally I have this resilience again, probably came from my parents and having worked and local government. I know that hard things are really hard, and that you just have to push it through and we were trying to earlier Kelly, and I went to some of the worst public meetings in the world as we were trying to help develop neighborhoods, and so I'm used to people being afraid of change and having to earn their trust to get it through. But in this, particular instance, we were facing was call the debt ceiling, and that is raising our debt limit. So that we don't default on the full, faith and credit of the United States of America treasury bonds, which.

2018 NFL training camp preseason players to watch

"A few more days of practice Head of them still and the latest is Anthony Costanzo and the way that coach. Reich kinda describes the injury to Costanzo is Oh it he had it and he's got it back and he's gonna There's. Gonna be some rest right he's gonna. Need a little bit of time. It's as vague as. Anything, out. There I'm wondering about Costanza 's future tell me I'm wrong Yeah Tony I I don't know about in terms of long term but I think. It's something to monitor the, rest? Of the that it'd be the first injured. Hamstring about two weeks before training camp. Started and then re tweaked it. During Friday night practice It's. Been really really durable NFL career he's only miss three games, maybe since his rookie season it's eleven and he looked, at positions on the colts. Roster and talk about depth I think left tackle might be, the most bear and unproven position on the roster so Dongo's bend your left tackle for the last seven years and he's going to miss a little bit of. Time, and, that, is very vague and maybe he doesn't play the, rest of the pre season but you would think just a tweaking of a hamstring he would be able to go by the regular season opens up here in a little over a month So you don't see it as a serious thing when you take a, look at the injuries that he had last year No, he was hoping last year two years ago think or maybe even the year before that when he was heard so I I don't. Think it's anything to fret over long term why. This is a guy that has been extremely extremely durable in bell career That guy wanting the, blind side of you know Through that awful twenty eleven so you end up through Angeles early. Years in these past couple of years as well I don't think it's anything that. It's a reoccurring injury that happened for several years maybe came back a little bit too soon, from that hamstring injury and and he openly. Admitted he kinda. Over trained in the off season so rest stuff you don't. Need a Santa Costanza in the month of August you need to see some of these other guys play left tackle in case this does become a lingering issue talking to. Kevin Bowen from ten seventy the fan dot com that's where you go to get all of. His latest on what's going on a training camp one of the things I noted is that when it comes to running back where, a little bit, of everywhere and nowhere on here we've, got MAC I think people are happy with him. But you, need a, little bit of that day Angela shoulder maybe better, but he still needs to hand off the ball who is he handing off to and, what are we seeing a lot of young guys Tony with Robert Turbin suspended for the first, four games James Andrew lock arguably I think the top three running back to the roster none, of them have, played with lock when you talk about, Marlin MAC going into the second season the mid. Rookies and, I am, highs and Jordan Wilkins as well and Jim Irsay, had quite hyperbole on Friday night saying that he thinks Marlee Matlin rush for fifteen hundred, yards this season I don't know if anyone in for Is He has his, bell Donald Trump of, sports just don't let them tweet Did he tweet which one was it he said it yeah. Said that we have three hundred and fifty yards rushing all last year so that's that's quite the jump for the second year back and especially. On the colts have said they want to be running back by committee so I think there are some young pieces to work with with MAC and what Jordan Wilkins the fifth round pick, out of night's camp, and I kind of bored More of a hybrid player probably help you out on special teams maybe a wide out as well so that's really really. Unproven and when roster cuts happen and the end of August you know you might be a decision that you look for more of a, more of a veteran objects I. Do think there, is something. To work with their but if the group they just, hasn't proved, themselves on the NFL level quite yet as you see it so far as in training camp Who is the player that we should be looking at and who's the player who you think is causing the most concern But I. Think a player that's really, surprises then the Niko Autry new defensive lineman signed from Oakland this past season. Back in March, I think one of the I think it was the first free, agent signing, McColl patio in, twenty eighteen and you know when you're talking about quit Nelson and how dominant the rookies ban, you know in full pads the guy that have occasionally been Autry and. The colts need some help with this new four three Friday and, Autry I think could be kind of a nice surprise I. Think that a guy that you feel, good about concern standpoint I'd probably go back into the secondary and go Quincy Wilson the second round pick some last year Who figure to be. Maybe the number one cornerback a corner in. General I think as a physician group that hasn't had a lot of play making here. In the first couple of, weeks at grand park and they're rotating a lot of bodies there doesn't look. Like many documents, in terms of starters and that group so they need Quincy Wilson, to a, merge because you, spent a second round pick on them you know we know full well how valuable corners are, today that I Sal and the colts just don't have a lot to. Work with with that you know kind of really a it's of, your top four corners I would say three of them are..
