- Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., whose career and personal life have been buffeted by political controversy in recent months, said Monday he would not run for Chicago mayor in 2011.
In a statement, Jackson said he has "many friends and colleagues" that might run for the office and that he will not be making an endorsement in the Feb. 22 contest to succeed Mayor Richard Daley, who is not running for re-election.
JJJr. is finally getting some good advice - shut up and fade into the background. Too bad he wasn't listening to that advice about three months ago.
