British TV looks at The Chicago Way

Clarice Feldman and Rosslyn Smith
Britain's Channel 4 ran this exceptionally thorough feature on Obama's Chicago roots. 
As a former resident of downtown Chicago I was impressed by the use of a stunning lightening storm over the city sequence as the lead into a clip of Chicago Tribune's columnist John Kass on how Obama's total silence about corruption inside Chicago politics speaks volumes.  
This 9.21 minute clip is worth watching if only as a refreshing change from the cheerleading that has come to dominate American news coverage. Imagine any reporter for a US network commenting that the campaign theme  is about hope and change "though the policies change in the hope of winning."
