Obama Is Invoked at Blagojevich Trial
An ex-aide to former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich testified this week that President Barack Obama knew Mr. Blagojevich wanted a plum job in the administration in exchange for appointing a politically palatable person to fill Mr. Obama’s vacated Senate seat.
Which excuse will Obama use?
1. That is the same thing Bush did.
2. The problem, although regrettable, started before I was elected.
3. This isn’t the Blagojevich I knew.
4. It’s a tough issue.
