Everyone has heard by now about the Governor of Illinois and the arrest by the FBI on federal corruption charges. What everyone seems to be forgetting is that a connection does exist between Obama and Blagojevich. Whoa! Hang on. I know. I know. Obama is not being charged with anything and there is no connection to any crime on Obama's part. Let's just clear the air on that.
Everyone from Obama's camp and almost the entire media is in denial that Obama barely even knows Blagojevich. You're telling me that the Senator of the state of Illinois has never met with the man? Talked with him? David Axelrod, Obama's chief advisor was Blagojevich's main advisor during his campaign! There is a connection... but it isn't criminal. So let's stop pretending that Obama is completely in the dark about this guy.
The other problem for Obama is that the probe into Blagojevich (forever known as the Blag henceforth due to having to look up his name each time I type it) stems from the FBI investigation into Tony Rezko. A close confidant of the Obama family. Also the person who helped Obama secure a pretty sweet and fishy land deal. So if Rezko is singing, Obama might not come away clean. Even if it's not a huge scandal... is this really the change you voted for? More Chicago politics????

I know i haven't been writing much since the election ended. In all honesty I knew all the hub-bub around the President-elects appointment would be mundane and less than newsworthy. I noted earlier that his transition team looks like the Clinton Administration v2.0 and so far his appointments have failed to change that opinion. So much for change.
