Report: Rahm Emanuel to Quit


June 20, 2010

(THEDAILYBEAST.COM)  Thought it must be taken with a grain of salt, Washington insiders have reportedly told the Daily Telegraph that President Obama’s Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel will very likely quit, and soon.

An anonymous leading Democratic consultant bets Rahm will leave “after the midterms” telling the British paper, “Nobody thinks it’s working but they can’t get rid of him—that would look awful.

He needs the right sort of job to go to but the consensus is he’ll go.” Reasons for Rahm’s departure include his often discordant relationship with Obama and his concern over burning out and missing out on time with his family because of the job’s demands. “Democrats have not stood behind the president in the way Republicans did for George W. Bush,” said the source, “and that was meant to be Rahm’s job.”
