Blagojevich Going Strong, says Willie Brown

As I previously noted, the former Speaker of the California Assembly and Mayor of San Francisco, Willie Brown, chatted with Governor Blagojevich and found that he had "many heated conversations" with Rahm Emanuel about nominating a replacement for Obama in the Senate.

In Willie's latest column, he notes a "Joe Montana" play: "Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's appointment of Roland Burris to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama - the same seat Blagojevich stands accused of attempting to sell - is the political play of the season."

Now we know that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid earlier tried to get Blagojevich to not appoint three other black males, preferring that he appoint a white female because he thought any of the blacks would not be re-electable. And it's all on tape, waiting to come out and add to the Democrat's embarrassment both before and after Obama's inauguration.

Speaking of embarrassing, now "New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson on Sunday announced that he was withdrawing his nomination to be President-elect Barack Obama's commerce secretary amid a grand jury investigation into how some of his political donors won a lucrative state contract."

The Obama Administration-elect is already the most scandal-prone administration-elect of all time.

And it will only get better.
