“Maybe in the lead role, maybe the running mate. Hey, he’s already been in the White House anyway,” one strategist said to the other.
Indeed, Mr. Emanuel, 54, was senior policy and strategy advisor for President Bill Clinton, and appointed White House Chief of Staff by President Obama. Similar rumors have surfaced about Mr. Emanuel for three years, and from major news organizations. He has so far dismissed the idea he’d run.
“I have a high regard for Rahm Emanuel. It is not an easy . To manage a city like Chicago with so many disparate parts to it is not an enviable task. I think that he is as qualified as anybody, but boy, it’s like being the president of the United States,” Mr. Redford said in an interview with the network before the series began.
“This series could have all the makings of a national political rebrand,” he adds.

**** I can not say I am exactly jumping for joy about having Emanuel in our White House, I think it would be like having a 110% Socialist to finish the destruction of our great nation.

This is the result of my search:
Chicago Huffington Post 2/22/2014:
Good thing Rahm Emanuel isn't the sensitive type: A new poll indicates there is little love for the Chicago mayor, with just a measly two percent of Chicagoans "strongly" approving of the "Rahmfather."
The Crain's poll notes it's Illinoisans outside Chicago that harbor a far less favorable view of Emanuel compared to Windy City residents; chalk it up to the mayor's "hardball image," his Chicago-centric agenda on gun control and generally progressive stance on issues that chafe more conservative residents downstate.
It is also noted that Chicago keeps track of Emanuel's foul mouth with:
