FBI INVESTIGATE TRUMP Once

A Bridge to Everywhere, courtesy of Barack Obama and Rod Blagojevich.

While I cringe at Barack Obama spending money on infrastructure projects such as bridges and roads so we can drive our foreign cars on them, I positively tremble when I read on Cannonfire CannonFire (Dec. 11, 2008 "What's at Stake") that Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich was also planning on getting federal funding for huge roadway infrastructure projects.

I feel like we are entering the world of double realities. On the one hand, the whole Chicago political scene can be spun as black versus white and that the White Daley regime was being supplanted by a black political caucus that allegedly was beholden to no one. On the other hand, there is the distinct possibility that Barack Obama interacted with a diverse group of politicians, and among them was Blagojevich and his plans for infrastructure projects that Barack Obama seemed keen on promoting from the White House.

Emil Jones seemed to take a huge liking to Barack Obama. If the Daley regime supported Blagojevich, and Emil Jones supported Barack Obama, and they are on opposite sides of the Political fence, then Barack Obama can possibly come out of this whole situation clean. If however, Jones and Daley are interconnected, or Barack and Blagojevich are interconnected, then that could be bad news for Barack Obama.

Could this be a situation where Barack Obama's denial of any involvement with Rod Blagojevich ends up becoming a bigger issue than any interaction that actually occurred?

It's more than likely -- if, of course, there actually is entanglement, which is also more than likely.

Politicians never learn. Trying to cover things up just leads to yet more controversy and scandal worse than the original problem.

Of all the ways that Barack Obama could have handled this situation, completely denying his involvement with Blagojevich seems to be the least intelligent path to take.

Barack Obama could have just as easily have said, I enjoyed working with Mr. Blagojevich when he was still an undiscovered but rising politician, I will try my best to avoid the type of behavior Mr. Blagojevich has been accused of by the FBI.

Or, by denying knowing Mr. Blagojevich at all, is Barack Obama laying trap to lure the media into looking for something that is not there?

Working with a criminal is not necessarily a criminal act if ones actions are always ethical.
