It appears that Rahm Emanuel is going to be able to run for mayor of Chicago. I'm actually pretty happy about this result, as his platform seems pretty nonpartisan. That, and the facts seem to point to his being committed to Chicago: 

Rahm Emanuel back in mayoral race after Supreme Court rules 7-0: “This is a situation in which, not only did the candidate testify that his intent was not to abandon his Chicago residence, his acts fully support and confirm that intent. The candidate told several friends that he intended to serve as Chief of Staff for no more than 18 months or two years before returning to Chicago. The candidate has continued to own and pay property taxes on the Chicago residence while only renting in Washington, D.C.’’
