CAMBRIDGE, MASS.--Obama top strategist David Axelrod was just asked at a forum at Harvard's Institute of Politics about the last time he chatted with Gov. Blagojevich. He sidestepped a direct answer about communications that may have taken place with the scandalized governor about replacing President elect Barack Obama in the Senate.

"We were not involved in that discussion or any discussion of that nature," Axelrod said.

Is it politics in progression or regression. I think it is politics, true to it's definition, as usual. The shadiness of Washington has tentacles all across the nation. News commentators talk and even question why public opinion (confidence) is in the doldrums. It may be that in the past many years there has been nothing but one scandle after another. Each political party pares off as news stories breaks to slander the other. Political truth just spirals out of control. The basic American family knows and concedes that they have no control of their futures. They overwhelmingly voted in November which was magnificent. Their hopes may be their epitaph.

MISERY LOVES COMPANY!
I REMEMBER MY AUNT RUTH TELLING ME THAT AS A
TEEN-AGER, THAT'S WHAT IS HAPPENING, THE GOV
ACTED AN BLANK AND EVERYONE WANTS SOMEONE IN
THE PRESIDENT-ELECTS CAMP TO FALL, WHAT IS THE
W0RLD COMING TO!
IT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!
THE MAN BETTER PLEAD GUILTY BY MENTAL DEFECT!
THE GOV GOOFED!
