    In regards to Jesse Jackson Jr.'s resignation, how to you think it affects President Obama's image or if it even does affect it, given the history between the two. Do you think this is a topic that may require some smart PR or do you think there will be no negative words said. Also, do you expect the Republican party to use this as a way to slam the President for the "Nth" time?

    In my experience, I have heard more negative things said and written about Mr. Jackson Jr. than positive. I feel like this could be big news, and I am curious to hear what people think could be said because of his resignation.
