Maybe now he’ll go to work full time for the Blagojevich campaign.
Former Gov. James R. Thompson is resigning as chairman of law firm Winston & Strawn LLP.
He plans to leave the chairman position next month after 13 yearsâ€”nearly matching his record 14-year tenure as governorâ€”but remain active as a Winston partner, he says.
â€œIt is time,â€ he says.
The move comes as Winston partners are voting on whether to curtail the chairmanâ€™s authority by consolidating operational responsibilities under the managing partner.
I was just kidding at the top of this post, of course.
