Washington insiders say they believe he could depart not long after crucial elections in November.

Mr Emanuel, 50, enjoys a good working relationship with Mr Obama but they are understood to have reached an understanding that differences over style mean he will serve only half the full four-year term.

His abrasive style has rubbed some people the wrong way, while there has been frustration among Mr Obama's closest advisers that he failed to deliver a smooth ride for the president's legislative programme that his background promised.

If he wants to run for Mayor of Chicago, he might just have to quit the White House gig now.

He is a protected class while residing at the W.H. If Blago is re-tried, he will not be able to claim executive privilege and could be made to testify under oath. That might be interesting.

If he runs and wins, it should tell you about the stupidity of the people of Chicago. It's like Capone never died.

I don't think Dead Fish-boy will win. Unless somehow 0bummer pressures Daley to endorse him.
