Do you think any of Frank Murkowski’s Other Kids Need Jobs?

Despite Sen. Ted Stevens threat that he would resign, the U.S. Senate went ahead and killed, for now, the “Bridge to Nowhere.” Just last month Stevens said:
"I don't kid people … If the Senate decides to discriminate against our state . . . I will resign from this body."
Yesterday however, Stevens was quoted as saying:

"While I am not happy with it, I think that under the circumstance it was the best we could expect because of the publicity that came with the Sunday supplements and whatever," he said. "Everybody is talking about what to do about our bridges."
Doesn’t sound quite like a resignation yet, but then again, its not like he promised to resign under oath.
