Your Sunday night Blago scandals reader

It's with a heavy heart that I post tonight's Rod Blagojevich update. And I'm not the only one in Illinois with a frown. For the second season in a row, the Chicago Bears will not be part of the NFL playoffs. And to think two years ago, the Bears played in the Super Bowl.

But by next September, the Bears will be back, and Blago will be gone.

And here are your Blago tidbits:

Chicago Sun-Times: Blagojevich's lawyer to submit internal report to impeachment panel

AP: Deficit lingers as Blagojevich faces legal fight

Peoria Journal-Star: Governor's lawyer to make case

Chicago Sun-Times: Axelrod on NBC's "Meet the Press" tells Gregory Obama team will not offer up Blagojevich inquiry notes, transcripts.

WEEK-TV Peoria: Brady On impeachment committee

UPI: Ill. legislator blasts Blagojevich lawyer

If Blago hadn't gotten busted, how
much time would he have had left in
office? And how many times can
someone run for governor?

As for the Bears better luck next

Blago's second miserable term expires in January of 2011. It's believed that he was planning to run for a third term, only this time, he'd face serious opposition in the Democratic primary, probably Lisa Madigan (AG) or Alexi Giannoulias (state treasurer).

They may run anyway. Well, not Blago.

As for Alexi, I can't see him winning again statewide, unless it's for reelection, or if he's unopposed for in a Dem primary. His family bank's Rezko ties will haunt him.

You keep forgetting that Blago might think that he can still win a primary in 2010. He also thought that he can avoid impeachment, an indictment by joining the US Senate himself and then run for President in 2016

Even if Blago could run for
president of the U.S., no one would
vote for him.
