Obama resigning Senate seat

President-elect Barack Obama says he’s resigning from the Senate, effective Sunday.
He is calling his four-year term “one of the highest honors and privileges” of his life.
The move was expected. Obama won the presidency last week over Republican John McCain.
It’s now up to Democratic Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich to name Obama’s replacement. Congress is scheduled to meet in a special session next week.
