Chief of Staff Emanuel says goodbye to White House

President Barack Obama has formally announced the departure of his chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, praising him as "extraordinarily well-qualified" for his new challenge - a run for mayor of Chicago.

Emanuel stood next to Obama as the president gave him a high-profile send-off in the East Room.

Obama called him "an incomparable leader" of the staff, and one who will be missed "very much."
