A softer side of Rahm Emanuel? Chicago's new mayor looks for a turnaround

In his first extensive interview since being sworn into office, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel talks openly about his time as President Obama's chief of staff, his years in Congress and his ambitions for higher office.

When asked if he'd consider a run for the White House in the future, Emanuel responded bluntly, "Not interested. Not going to do it."

In the interview with Rock Center's Harry Smith, Emanuel, a politician once known for his tough-talking rhetoric, reveals a different side of his personality. Now in his sixth month as mayor, some Chicago locals say a different, softer side of Emanuel is emerging.
