Scroll down a few posts to see my take on Ill. Governor Rod Blagojevich.
Rich Miller at Capitol Fax has an excellent run-down of the latest write-ups on Rod Blagojevich and the $1,500 birthday check given to his seven year-old daughter. People who don't ordinarily pay attention to politics are watching this story.
On a different front, a Chicago Sun-Times/NBC 5 Chicago poll shows Blagojevich far ahead of his Republican challenger, Judy Baar Topinka. This poll not only has Blagojevich above the coveted 50 percent mark, but Blago leads Topinka by 30 points. All previous polls I've seen have "Blago" below 50 percent, with an average 10 percentage point lead over Topinka.
