Goodbye To The Senate

Obama is officially resigning his Senate seat, effective Sunday. "It has been one of the highest honors and privileges of my life to have served the people of Illinois in the United States Senate," he said in a statement.

That puts to rest speculation about whether he'd vote on any stimulus package or auto industry bailout bill that might appear in the lame duck Congress.
