WASHINGTON — US President Barack Obama on Friday freed his hard-charging chief of staff Rahm Emanuel to run for mayor of Chicago, replacing the famously raucous White House gatekeeper with Pete Rouse, as quiet and low-key as his predecessor was boisterous.

The ceremonial changing of the guard marked a clear loss for Obama, who relied heavily on Emanuel's intensity, discipline and congressional relationships to keep the White House focused and aggressive.

"We could not have accomplished what we've accomplished without Rahm's leadership," Obama said. Emanuel is departing after nearly two grueling, rough-and-tumble years in Washington, where the political atmosphere has become increasingly and bitterly partisan.
