Washington insiders say White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, will quit within six to eight months.
Despite having a good working relationship with President Obama, they have reached an understanding that differences over style, frustration over policy and concerns over family mean he will serve only half the full four-year term.
According to a leading Democratic consultant in Washington:
“I would bet he will go after the midterms. 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.”
The abrasive, vulgar, much-disliked Emanuel is expected to move on after the midterm elections in November.
