President-elect Barack Obama has deftly deflected the question regarding whether anyone in his camp has had contact with Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Obama has used the pending investigation as a crutch to not release the results of an internal investigation, but Chicago news reporters want to continue to put heat on Obama to push for a special election according to the Chicago Tribune.
Obama is clearly trying to protect his boy Rahm Emanuel, who clearly had contact with Blaagojevich about preferred Senate candidates. I can't put heat on our president-elect for that as it appears that Emanuel did nothing wrong in making contact with the Illinois governor.
