    Mayor Richard Daley may not be seeking a seventh term, but that doesn't mean he's stopped thinking ahead.

    Daley spent a few minutes Tuesday evening with a throng of reporters outside a meeting with the Korean Chamber of Commerce and said he's got big plans.

    "I know what I want to do and I'll do it," Daley said.

    But he was mum on details: "I can't tell. I'm not going to tell anyone, but I will do it. You always have a plan in life. You have a flexible plan, but you have a plan."

    He did, however, rule out a role in public service.
