Before he left word was starting to get out that he was unhappy and would be going. There were several reasons for it as highlighted in these articles.

Rahm Emanuel expected to quit White House


It is well known in Washington that arguments have developed between pragmatic Mr Emanuel, a veteran in Congress where he was known for driving through compromises, and the idealistic inner circle who followed Mr Obama to the White House.


He seems a very driven man and one of his drives is to "get things done". He was frustrated that the idealism of many in the administration (including Obama at times it seems) stood in the way of actually getting some of the things they wanted accomplished.

He was becoming more and more frustrated with the administration while catching heat for the agenda not progressing. This was born out in this account of a heated meeting.

Chief of Staff Draws Fire From Left as Obama Falters


The friction was laid bare in August when Mr. Emanuel showed up at a weekly strategy session featuring liberal groups and White House aides. Some attendees said they were planning to air ads attacking conservative Democrats who were balking at Mr. Obama's health-care overhaul.

"F—ing retarded," Mr. Emanuel scolded the group, according to several participants. He warned them not to alienate lawmakers whose votes would be needed on health care and other top legislative items.


It is true he wanted more time with his family. But he was also becoming highly stressed, and very frustrated with the administration.

White House officials are considering tapping William Daley, the former commerce secretary and brother of Chicago's mayor, for a senior administration position, most likely chief of staff, people familiar with the situation said Monday.

President Obama is expected to begin acting on staffing recommendations from his interim chief of staff, Pete Rouse, as soon as he returns Tuesday from his vacation in Hawaii. Rouse conducted a review of White House operations in the hope of revamping a system that saw frequent breakdowns between its political, policy and communications shops last year.

and here is your answer


But the introduction of Daley's name into the mix suggested that Obama's former chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, is still exerting influence over the White House even while running for mayor of Chicago, people familiar with the process said. Daley also has ties to senior adviser David Axelrod, another longtime Chicago operative who is planning to return to the city in the next six weeks.

Pretty mind numbing isn't it? Its all just falling into place. Rahm is magically deemed a Chicago resident and is the #1 candidate for Chicago Mayor, Obama will probably base his 2012 election campaign out of Chicago with Axlerod at the helm and now this.

Makes me want to say Hmmm??

Well it blew my mind, odd how people are ignoring these topics, I think it should be delved into deeper, I am going to connect some more dots, there is something very creepy going on, ever since the BP oil spill, I notice Illinois is playing a horrible role on the world stage.

GMOs

Obamas ties to ethanol, its all there.
