Emanuel, the most political animal in this town, also should understand
that keeping Rogers on as social secretary reflects upon the
president's judgment. It's possible that he has other considerations.
Emanuel is said to have told people that the chief-of-staff role is an
18-month job and that he is considering a run for mayor of Chicago. And
Rogers is a major social and political player in the Windy City.
Judging by the comments posted following the Tribune's piece on the rumor, good old Rahmie stands not chance.
