"Why Charles Rangel is surviving"http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0710/40474.htmlAnd there's this: http://www.outsidethebeltway.com/why-charlie-rangel-will-likely-survive/Now that Obama has suggested that Rangel resign, you can be sure he won't, and that if he runs he'll win! I know my district. Witness the Obamians trying to get David Patterson to resign as governor. That didn't work either though he dropped out of the governor's race.
