Council Confrontation?

Two big power meetings in recent days: The secret get-together between Prez Obama and Oprah and the equally secret get-together between Council President Clem Campana, Rabbit Riley and Frank LaPosta.

We hear the power centered around the trio's plans for Campana to keep control of the Council Presidency, just as controversial At-Large Councilman John Brown is seen as making a run for the job. Is there a bullet for Brown project in the works?

Wonder if they discussed how the endless stumbles and fumbles by Council Democrats have most political observers expecting a flip in the majority.
