Mr. Obama came out today with a slightly stronger statement against Rod  Blagojevich, but not by much.

“I do not think that the governor at this point can effectively serve the people of Illinois,” Obama said. “The legislature is going down to Springfield to make a determination as to how to resolve this issue. I think they’re going to come to the same conclusion…What I want to see is a quick resolution of this issue. I want to make sure that the next senator from the State of Illinois is carrying on a tradition of service.”

That is fine, and all, but Mr. Obama must come out more strongly, and must place all the facts on the table.  I don’t think any reasonable observer believes Obama is involved in this corruption; why he isn’t making a full statement, and ending this nonsense, is beyond me.
