The day has come for Rahm Emanuel to step aside. As he prepares to take over as President-Elect Barack Obama's Chief-of-Staff on January 20, Emanuel officially resigns from his spot as the U.S. rep for Illinois' Fifth Congressional District (coincidentally where the Chicagoist office is located). He gave us "Rahmbo" and some excellent charades skills, among other things, and something tells us this won't be the last we see of him in the fifth district.
