Obama "saddened and sobered" by Blagojevich corruption case

Saddened and sobered? WTF? Does anyone know WHY President-elect Obama did not say something better than that, like call for Blagojevich's immediate resignation?
Sometimes saying too little is saying too much.

And what exactly does "sobered" mean anyway? Hell if I know. That's why I went to dictionary.com. Here's what I came up with, but I still don't know what he meant!
