“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.? I’m told there’s a shower in that building he can use, and Patti can fix her face and they can take the elevator on up. ?It is the federal building, where U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald works.? It’s time to cut a deal, Rod, if they’ll let you. You’ll do prison time, sure, and you’ll have to testify. But don’t think others aren’t lining up to bury you with their own testimony to save themselves.? There’s one thing to do, former governor. Start talking.”
