    "CHICAGO – Rahm Emanuel will resign as White House chief of staff on Friday and will begin his campaign for Chicago mayor by meeting with voters in the city on Monday, two people familiar with Emanuel's plans said."

    The O has been losing many cabinet level appointments of late. People seem almost to be jumping ship.

    Chicago Mayor? Sheesh, I was so hoping he would become the guy who pumps out the sewers of Mexico City...

    Wait, that's still too close to home. Maybe a weather station attendant in Antarctica is better!

    If he becomes mayor, Obami will be able to construct his own theme park, idolizing himself, with no problems.

    Heard a guy on the radio today.

    His take was they were bailing out after saying 'mission accomplished'

    The cheese is getting stale for them, so the rats are jumping ship, hoping to do better in other places with their polluting.

    Emanuel has left the WH, so will he now draw a retirement check the rest of his life for the position he vacated?

    Do you think any such check would matter to him?

    There's easy money if you are plugged in at the top of the political ladder

    Terry McAuliffe
    a quick $18MM https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Terry_McAuliffe
    that left him free to be a Clinton mouthpiece

    Or my all time favorite https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipe...ational_Mortgage_Association_.28Fannie_Mae.29

    Investigation by the OFHEO detailed in their official report on the accounting scandal in 2006 on page 66 that from 1998 to 2002 Gorelick received a total of $26,466,834.00 in income.

    I'm glad he's gone, but I too wonder what radical Marxist will replace him. Any ideas?
