Regarding Blago…um…Blagod…uh…Regarding Illinois’ Disgraced Governor

Is everybody pretty well versed in the scandal swirling around now-arrested soon-t-be-former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich? He tried to sell President-elect Barack Obama’s now-vacant U.S. Senate seat, which is illegal. The FBI has wiretaps and everything. It’s bad.

The question, naturally, is: what did Obama know, and when did he know it? Somebody on Obama's team knew something. That's for sure.

However, I feel safe in saying that, no matter how the whole thing plays out, these questions will continue to circulate throughout Obama’s time in the Presidency. At the very least, the Obama’s-Not-a-Citizen crowd will keep it alive.

But unless somebody’s got Obama on tape – and it’s clearly Obama speaking, and he’s clearly speaking about a quid pro quo in exchange for Blago appointing someone Obama wants – it’ll never go anywhere.

Zip. Nada. Zilch. Next scandal, please.
