The Blagojevich Blues Continue

Each hour that passes since the arrest of Gov. Blagojevich brings out more interesting stuff that is adding doubts about the future of government in America. It's too easy to say "Oh, that's just Chicago politics". It isn't just Chicago politics, it's symbolic of what has happened in politics throughout the country, and it's part and parcel of the steady deterioration of ethics and morality in our behavior as a people. And it didn't begin yesterday, it's been present in our leaders almost from the beginning. In my lifetime, FDR had his Lucy, Ike had his British female Capt. Summersby, JFK had several including Marilyn, LBJ had daily workouts with a few, Nixon had a rumored affair with Madame Chiang, and Clinton had his Monica and others. Then there's the NY governor who had to resign over a high-priced lady of the night and John Edwards who fathered a child by a mistress. And that was just the morality part of the equation. There have been several Congressmen and Senators who put their hands in the taxpayers' cookie jar and several who had habits not unlike the former Presidents named above.

The Obama Connection

It remains to be seen if anything damaging is going to be revealed by the Blagojevich matter to hurt Obama. But, there are too many coincidences to simply accept his word that he's not been involved somehow. If he hasn't been involved, it would be a simple matter for him to open up to the truth. Stay tuned.
