“Now unemployed and with a federal indictment bearing down on him, Rod Blagojevich should stick to his routine, put on his track suit and go for a run.? Rod can run south on Clark and into the Loop, turning east on Adams Street to the southeast corner of Adams and Dearborn, a steel-and-glass high-rise, where [his wife] Patti can wait for him.?
