My read on Mayor Ed is that like him or not he never loses, and that cant be discounted. I read a lot of not so flattering things about Mayor Ed, but he appears to know his own shortcomings and knows how to play the game.
I do agree with you Opie for the most part that on local matters the R and D shouldnt matter, but lets face it, if Mayor Ed wasnt a Democrat the Democrats wouldnt have bothered to pluck an appointment away from Prenzler for the MESD. So in that regard, it really does matter.
Let the reshuffling continue.
