So why is someone with that intensity and political drive leaving the most important job in the White House behind the President? He wants to become the mayor of Chicago.
That seems to be a noble cause. Right now, Illinois is embattled in scandals that began with the election of former Illinois Senator Barack Obama to the US Presidency. Allegations that former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich essentially "sold" Obama's seat, and Jesse Jackson Jr.'s alleged involvement has been the subject of much political issues for the past two years.
With many high-profile Illinois politicians battling out the scandal, perhaps Rahm Emanuel can step right in.
Still yet, there's no indication that he will win. There's no guarantee. It will be interesting to see what becomes of Rahm Emanuel now that he's gone out of the Obama administration. DO you think he will make it as Chicago mayor?
