Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley‘s surprise announcement today that he would not seek a seventh term [6] in 2011 immediately set off speculation that White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel would enter the race.

A senior Obama Administration official said Emanuel is likely to run for the post. “I’d be shocked if he doesn’t run,” the official said.
