Roland Burris won't run for Senate after all:
The decision, which is expected to be formally announced Friday, comes as a surprise to absolutely no one in local politics.
... Mr. Burris has raised almost nothing of the millions of dollars he would need for a serious campaign, and another well known African-American figure, Chicago Urban League President Cheryle Jackson, has formed an exploratory committee.
So, with Madigan and Burris both out, the 2010 election campaign should be a hoot. I can't wait.
