Court Boots Emanuel From Ballot

Former President Bill Clinton appears at a rally for Chicago mayoral candidate and former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel last week in Chicago. Emanuel was trying to succeed the retiring Mayor Richard Daley. But a state appeals court ruled today that Emanuel can't run for mayor because he wasn't a resident of Chicago for a full year. The election is Feb. 22. Story here. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green)

Obama has made  official what has been clear for days:  Rahm  Emanuel, the relentless enforcer of his agenda as White House chief of staff, is resigning to run for mayor of Chicago. Story here.

Question: In his cartoon today, conservative Michael Ramirez compares this move by Rahm Emanuel as someone bailing out of a plane about to crash. How do you view it?
