Emanuel Quits Ala Palin, Except He Can't Run for Mayor

Poor Rahm Emanuel. He quit his post serving out nation halfway into it to run  for Mayor, reminiscent of Sarah Palin when she ran for Vice President.

Big difference is Palin had people suing her right and left for Alaska related things.

Bigger difference too is that Sarah Palin was legally allowed to do exactly what she did. Emanuel neglected to research fully his concern, and now, the courts say he can't run.

Court: Emanuel's name can't be on mayoral ballot

My best guess is President Obama ran him out politely, that their relationship was good (hence the support for Emanuel's Chicago run), but that our good president wanted someone else in Emanuel's position.

Sadly, you are/were wrong. When a dictator is about to "come down" on his servants, he first spreads his power to the far reaches of his kingdom.
Emanuel, as we now know, went to the only state that is so corrupt that the corruption extends through their Supreme Court (nothing supreme about it, actually), thus ensuring that Illinois law would be set aside to let the "still" second in command create a power base among the crooked union bosses.
