Not Another Whitewater

Yes, the wingnut freakazoid remnant of the republican party will try to turn the downfall of Illinois Governor Rod Blagejovich into the new Whitewater, but it won't work.

Down deep, they know that Obama is unlikely to hand them an easy way to defeat him, so their only hope of surviving as a political party is to harass him nonstop with a non-scandal like Whitewater.

They think Blagejovich is the new Whitewater, and I hope they spend every dime and ounce of energy they have into trying to make it so.

For those who have been living in the Rove bubble for the last year: Barack Obama is neither Bill Clinton, who couldn't help but look corrupt even when he was just stupid, nor Hillary Clinton, who couldn't help stonewalling even when she had nothing to hide.

Not only is there nothing about Blagejovich to hurt Obama, but unlike the Clintons, Obama knows how to make it clear and convincing that there's nothing there.

There'll be something to panic about soon, no doubt.

But Blagojevich ain't it.
