    Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel headed to the White House Friday, making his first return there since he left in October. 

    The former chief of staff met with President Barack Obama before noon.

    "The President and Mayor-elect enjoyed a productive conversation in which a broad range of topics were discussed," said Emanuel spokeswoman Caroline Weisser.

    Emanuel will spend this weekend and next weekend with his family in Washington, D.C., where they still live.

    The mayor-elect's kids go to school in D.C., though they're expected to move back to Chicago after the school year.

    In addition to Emanuel's meeting with Obama, it's also expected that he will attend the March 11 Blackhawks event honoring the team's 2009-2010 Stanley Cup victory.
