Senior White House Official: Obama Has Accomplished More in Thirty Days Than Any President in American History | Main | Preview of Obama's Speech
February 24, 2009

Burris: Sure I'm Corrupt, and To Make Up For That, I Won't Run in 2010, But I'm Staying in Office Until Then

Nuance. Too corrupt to stand for election, but not too corrupt to serve as a US Senator:

Embattled Sen. Roland Burris (D-Ill.) meets with Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) on Tuesday afternoon. Burris understands that he needs to try to mollify Durbin and he will attempt to do that.

Scoop: Burris will also be sending, directly or indirectly (maybe this is it) two messages: he will not resign in the wake of the controversy surrounding his appointment by the ousted Gov. Blagojevich and he will not run for the seat in 2010. Burris has finally realized that not seeking election next year is the least price he will pay.
