After weeks of rumblings, Rahm Emanuel appears to be out. The White House Chief of Staff is expected to step down in order to make a bid for Chicago mayor.
The White House says President Obama is scheduled to make a personnel announcement tomorrow. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs would not confirm the content of the announcement. But, Pete Rouse's name has allegedly been floated around as Emanuel's replacement on an acting basis. Rouse, White House senior adviser, was Obama's chief of staff when he served in the Senate.
