Obama and Emanuel: Great Team or a Mismatch?

Hosted by

Chicago Mayor Richard Daley is stepping down, and Rahm Emanuel wants the job. President Obama is expected to announce his Chief of Staff's departure tomorrow. Emanuel has been the "get-it-done insider" to Obama's "visionary outsider," praised for legislative successes and scapegoated for defeats. But along the way, Emanuel has angered conservative Republicans, who think Obama has gone too far, and alienated liberal Democrats who say he hasn't gone far enough. Will his departure unite a divided White House?  Who will be next?  What are his chances at home in Chicago?
