Scrappleface reports that, while waiting for the inauguration, Barack Obama is working on another memoir. This one will chronicle his days in the Senate.
According to a news release from the publisher, the memoir entitled 143 Days That Shaped a Nation: The Senate Career of Barack Obama, â€œis third in a series of biennial Obama memoirs and promises a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of the senate from an outsiderâ€™s perspective, along with personal anecdotes about senate colleagues whom Sen. Obama occasionally met, or heard about.â€
â€œWhen you have served as long as I have,â€ said Mr. Obama, â€œI think you have an obligation to pass on some of that wisdom that comes from your experience for the benefit of the people of the world.â€
Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich must now choose a replacement who has experience comparable with Sen. Obamaâ€™s â€” a daunting task, the governor said, â€œwhen you realize that whomever I pick as junior senator might be just one great speech away from the Democrat presidential nomination.â€
