But he's still an Obama supporter ;)
....of course....CHICAGO - Gov. Rod Blagojevich backs Illinois' Barack Obama, but he said Thursday that it is a mistake for fellow Democrats to discount GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin's experience as Alaska governor.
The executive job of governor is like the presidency because the officeholder has to make decisions, Blagojevich said. Lawmakers do different things like "debate and ... pass their bills back and forth," he said.
Obama, the Democratic nominee for president, was a state senator before being elected to the U.S. Senate from Illinois.
"But governors make decisions and I think it's a tactical mistake for the Democrats to question Gov. Palin's experience when she's been a governor of a state," Blagojevich said on WGN-AM's "Spike O'Dell Show."
Obama's campaign did not comment on Blagojevich's statements. But during a recent interview with MSNBC's Keith Olbermann, Obama ducked when asked whether he believed Palin had enough experience to be president.
"I'll let Gov. Palin answer that," Obama said with a smile. "I'm sure she'll be appearing on your show."
