The Senatorial Circus

Nicole Stockdale points out that although Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich has been arrested and charged with taking bribes in connection with the appointment of a U.S. Senator to replace President elect Barack Obama, he remains governor and, as such, is the one person with the legal responsibility to make the appointment.

One suspects at the end of this someone will be appointed with a squeaky clean reputation (if such a person can be found in Illinois) to serve out the term and not seek re-election.
