Change On The Outside. Continuity On The Inside.

The political drama "Boss" was an eerily accurate depiction of real Chicago politics.  Chicago’s political machine: the corruption, the suffocating addiction to power, and the manipulation that made voters believe they had a choice between candidates. Pat Hughes explains how the show's theme: “Change on the outside. Continuity on the inside” is one of the ways the Democrat establishment maintains power over the families of Illinois.
