Chicago Thug Steps Aside

To make room for another Chicago thug?

White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel has said he would like to run for mayor of Chicago someday – and that day might have arrived.

Chicago Mayor Richard Daley announced Tuesday that he will not run for reelection, saying he wants to move on. His decision could clear an exit from the White House for Emanuel, who himself is widely believed to be looking for a graceful way to move on after two grueling years in President Obama’s inner circle.

In an interview with Charlie Rose in April, Emanuel said he supported Daley but that he would like to seek the position if the opportunity presented itself.
