Mike Robinson writes: Durbin: Keep Fitzgerald as U.S. attorney

Guess this is what happens to the Gov when he doesn't return Durbin's phone calls. From Mike Robinson at the AP,

U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin said Friday that he will recommend another term for corruption-busting federal prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald if he wants to stay on as Chicago’s U.S. attorney.

Durbin told a news conference that he first wants to sit down with Fitzgerald and ask him what he wants to do. Asked if he would recommend that President-elect Barack Obama renominate Fitzgerald, Durbin said: “Yes.”

“I think he has done an extraordinary job as U.S. attorney; I have the greatest confidence in him,” Durbin said. “I want to do what he wants to do, I want to support what he wants to do, and I won’t presume what that is.”

That'll be an interesting one-on-one.
