The Most Dangerous Man in America
As the saying goes, there is nothing more dangerous than a man with nothing left to lose. So you have to wonder, now that he has been convicted and removed from office, what does former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich have to lose?
Blagojevich has no political career left to save. He has no legal career to resurrect. He has no job, no state office to preserve, no reputation left to save.
Can you think of anything more dangerous with than a politician in this kind of position?
There is only one thing that Rod Blagojevich needs to worry about anymore, and that is trying to avoid prison time as much as he possibly can. If that is the direction in which he goes, than pretty much anybody who has ever been connected to the Governor may want to consider lawyering up. Because Blagojevich could very well decide to sign like a canary. That means that there are lot of powerful people, all the way up to President Obama, who could get more involved in this mess. But because of how this thing has played out so far doesn’t mean that anybody else is going to be indicted just because Blagojevich starts to sign. If this entire endeavor has taught us anything, it’s the fact that Rod Blagojevich is delusion and insane. The man seems to be completely bonkers with the “defense” that he launched of these charges. And it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if Blago just started making stuff up on the fly…..but that doesn’t mean there aren’t real skeletons out there waiting to be exposed.
Illinois is a seedy place to practice politics, and Rod Blagojevich is (so far) the seediest of the seedy. With self-preservation as his only resort, we must see a bit more light shined on Chicago-style politics, which truly makes him a danger to the Obama Administration and, perhaps, the most dangerous man in America….
