White House after Rahm

President Obama announced that Rahm Emanuel, his chief of staff, is leaving the office to run for mayor of Chicago. Political Science department chair Graham Wilson comments on the move.

“This may be unkind, but it is tempting to link Emanuel to two crucial strategic errors – the belief that compromise and cooperation with the Republicans was possible, and a concentration on an ‘inside the Beltway’ strategy rather than working to maintain the enthusiasm and mobilzation of 2008.”

Now Rahm looks like he might be leaving for nothing, he might have residency problems in Chicago.
