    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."
    ....of course....

    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."

    I guess this was another above my paygrade question. Boy! Punting is really becoming a habit with this guy!

    In June 2005, in what Obama now describes as a "boneheaded" mistake, Obama and Rezko's wife bought adjacent properties on Chicago's South Side, closing the deals on the same day. Seven months later, wanting a bigger yard for his $1.65 million house, Obama bought a slice of the Rezko property for $104,500.
    There's no doubt that this was a mistake on my part. 'Boneheaded' would be accurate," Obama said in a telephone interview Friday. "There's no doubt I should have seen some red flags in terms of me purchasing a piece of property from him."
    his base rate of pay rise to more than $66,000 up from $57,600.http://http://www.pantagraph.com/art...6453182858.txt

    So how does a $66,000.00 a year Sinator afford the mortgage on a $1.65 MILLION DOLLAR house?:eek:
