Obama's Solyndra scandal reeks of the Chicago Way

Kass today in the Trib: Obama's Solyndra scandal reeks of the Chicago Way
The Solyndra scandal cost at least a half-billion public dollars. It is plaguing President Barack Obama. And it's being billed as a Washington story.

But back in Obama's political hometown, those of us familiar with the Chicago Way can see something else in Solyndra — something that the Washington crowd calls "optics." In fact, it's not just a Washington saga — it has all the elements of a Chicago City Hall story, except with more zeros.
Solyndra's about as Chicago as it gets.
