2008_10_29_jackson.jpgIf Illinois Senator Barack Obama is elected President next week, then someone will have to fill his shoes in the U.S. Senate and recent speculation has centered around Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. getting the nod from Governor Blagojevich and then Jackson's wife Sandy taking his congressional seat. Jackson dismissed the speculation and said his current focus is on getting Obama elected.

Pretty modest sentiment from a guy whose website has a link on the front page titled, "If Obama wins, Jackson Jr. should take Senate seat."
