The president will bid farewell
to Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel on Friday, Oct. 1. Emanuel is poised to run for mayor of Chicago. In what may be the worst kept secret in Washington, the White House is expected to name Senior Adviser Pete Rouse
to fill Emanuel's shoes in the interim until a permanent chief of staff is named. Here's what's on tap:
10:00 a.m. -- The president receives the presidential daily briefing in the Oval Office.
11:05 a.m. -- Makes a "personnel announcement" in the East Room. (No word on whether there will be "Rahm for Mayor" buttons on sale outside the West Wing.)
11:30 a.m. -- Meets with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the Oval Office.
12:15 p.m. -- Briefing by Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.
