In case you were wondering... 

From HuffPo:

The arrest this morning of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has sparked intense discussion in the political universe over how great a taint his ethical follies will have both on the next Illinois Senator and Barack Obama.

The governor, accused of seeking cash for the political appointment of Obama's Senate replacement, is not a close associate of the President-elect.

In other news, it's unclear why this NY Times story, about how "a phone call [Obama] made three months ago to urge passage of a state ethics bill indirectly contributed to the downfall of a fellow Democrat he twice supported, Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich," is said in its front-page subhead to show "the contradictions of Barack Obama’s rise through the murky world of Illinois politics."
