Sen. Roland Burris isn’t going to run for his own Senate seat in the 2010 election, which means it’ll be a rare race where neither side will have an incumbent advantage. Add in the cloud of corruption that brought him his seat and I think this’ll end up being the Republicans’ race to lose.

I do have to wonder, though, if this wasn’t part of some bargain: he gets the seat, no election required, but doesn’t get to run for re-election. Normally I’d disregard any talk of that sort of “bargaining” as conspiracy theory and hokum, but at this point, I’d believe pretty much anything about the former Blagojevich administration.
