Doctor: Jackson Has ‘Mood Disorder’

    WASHINGTON - DECEMBER 10:  Rep. Jessie Jackson Jr. (D-IL) addresses a news conference at the U.S. Captiol December 10, 2008 in Washington, DC. Jackson had been mentioned as a potential replacement for the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by President-elect Barack Obama. Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich (C), who has the power to fill the vacant Senate seat, was arrested at his Chicago home yesterday and charged with corruption after prosecutors said he was trying to sell the seat to the highest bidder.
