According to the Chicago Trib, the bloom is off the rose, the honeymoon is well and truly over for Rod.
With what Blagojevich has done so far (turning the State Board of Ed into a political crony panel, among other things) and what he's been advocating (especially that "campaign reform" crap), I sure hope the Republicans can find a solid candidate to oppose him.
Of course, he might view this as his signal to run for Prez in '08. After all, doesn't the Democratic Party need a pretty face to lead them to victory? They don't seem to be able to win on merit. I wonder why that is? Could it be that regular voters don't quite follow that "hate Bush, hate Republicans" song? Might they actually want to elect somebody willing to carry a genuine tune? Could it be the "vision thing"? Or could it be that some folks are just tired of Demos' obstructionism?
Can't be ethics that the public expects. This is politicians we're talking about, after all.
