I’d heard some rumblings about this. But I couldn’t quite get myself to believe it. But Sen. Larry Craig is now saying he may not resign after all
“The outcome of the legal case in Minnesota and the ethics investigation will have an impact on whether we’re able to stay in the fight — and stay in the Senate,” says Craig’s spokesman.
In addition to the obvious, previously stated advantages (electoral, moral, schadenfreudal), one of Josh’s readers points out that this could possibly overshadow the Petraeus report. Which, considering as the un-resignation of a Senator is much more newsworthy than a prefabricated joke of a progress report, is for the best.
