Rahm Emanuel has been defeated.
The ballet dancing former congressman may have conquered Washington D.C. but he couldn't crack his high school's hall of fame.
Rahm's Alma mater, New Trier Township High School, rolled out its first annual alumni Hall of Honors awards this week and Emanuel's name didn't make the list.
Some notable alums did beat out the Chicago mayoral candidate.
Donald Rumsfeld (Class of 1950), Playboy executive Christie Hefner (Class of 1970) and Rainn Wilson (Class of 1984) and others in fields of television, medicine and dance we're included.
The Winnetka school also overlooked another politician -- U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk.
Maybe Kirk and Rahm can campaign together to get on next year's ballot.
