Rangel Hits Obama Closer to Home
It certainly didn't take long for scandal to rear its ugly head in the new era of Democratic control. Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich saw to that, and in spectacular fashion.
But while most attention is fixed on the Blagojevich scandal -- coming as it does in President-elect Barack Obama's home state and replete as it is with enough tape-recorded talk of peddling a Senate seat, shaking down contributors and blackmailing journalists to make even FBI agents blush -- it may not be the most troublesome one for the new president.
I do believe we're in for a roller coaster ride - at least until sometime after Jan. 20th when Obama gets his machine fully in place so the leaks and problems are shushed up.
The media closed their eyes to anything negative about Obama. They're starting to see through that euphoric shield they erected and it's not looking pretty.
