Why Jackson Still Isn't Talking Publicly

Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) said his former colleague and friend Jesse Jackson Jr. still "can't take the pressure" of speaking publicly about his resignation, the Chicago Sun Times reports.

Said Rush: "Some moments he would be very articulate, very flowing with his thoughts, very much in control and command, but then at the drop of the hat, he just started crying."

Jackson, who is under treatment for bipolar depression, resigned from Congress last week in the midst of a federal investigation into his campaign finances.
