Why, by saying that he wants to spend more time with his family, of course.

Addendum: I just saw this: "Friends say he is also worried about burnout and losing touch with his young family due to the pressure of one of most high profile jobs in US politics."

So, there it is.

Here is the long term plan I heard. Rahm is waiting for the opportunity to run again in IL when he wins he will become the speaker of the house or the minority leader depending on political timing. Rahm wants to be SotH and the OA would love to have him there.

Puff piece...

No mention of Emanuel cursing out Representatives in the showers...

No mention of Emanuel sending Clinton to offer Sestak jobs in exchange for dropping out of a primary...

No mention of Emanuel calling some Democrats a bunch of "f**king retards"...

Nothing to see here folks...

I couldn't agree more........

The "experiment" didn't work as far as I'm concerned.........


It will be interesting to find out more on the inside banter of this administration and who was having problems with who......

I wonder if Hillary had any play here..........?
