Toni Preckwinkle

President, Cook County Board of Commissioners

Age: 67

Oh, Toni. You passed up what may have been your best shot at the top: Polls last summer put you a whopping 24 points ahead of Rahm if you had run for mayor. Yes, we get that you have unfinished work at the county level: You began 2015 with a $170 million deficit and a $150 million pension shortfall—which, with your reputation for competence and honesty, you’re more than capable of fixing. Bottom line: You may have slid four spots, but you’re still the most powerful woman in Chicago.
