Profiles in Discretion: Rod Blagojevich

You don't see political careers explode that spectacularly very often. When you've got a governor on tape saying, explicitly, "I want money" in exchange for the U.S. Senate seat he's authorized to fill, and pointing out how much leverage he has, since if they don't pay, he can always appoint himself to the Senate... Well, you're just being greedy if you ask for that governor to also be a Republican.

I wish you had done better for yourself by speaking up more on this topic, here for sure, but even elsewhere, Doyle. IMO, it's a lost opportunity. Also, to be blunt and honest, the lack makes me question my own firm if quirky insistence on my personal, idiosyncratic take on you.

What's up with the reticence?
