No early release for Blago from Obama

Rod Blagojevich, the hair-brained former Illinois governor who is serving a federal prison sentence for corruption, will not be receiving a pardon or a commutation from his fellow Chicago Democrat, outgoing president Barack Obama.

Look for Blago and his family to press the new president, Donald J. Trump, for the same. Blagojevich was a contestant on Trump's Celebrity Apprentice. While Trump showed genuine sympathy for the then-indicted Blago, the new president is a law-and-order guy.

Which is good.
