"We have concluded that allegations...lack a basis in the law."

Here is the full text of White House Counsel Bob Bauer on the allegations that the White House acted illegally in discussing a position for Rep. Joe Sestak in return for him opting to not run for the Democratic nomination for the Senate in Pennsylvania.

This statement is complete, as far as the general facts are concerned. But still left unanswered is why the White House would want to hitch its wagon to an octogenarian senator who was a Democrat-before-he-became-a-Republican-before-he-became-a-Democrat in a volatile year for political incumbents.
