Blagojevich arrest, five years later
Today is the five year anniversary of former Gov. Rod Blagojevich being arrested in dawn hours at his home.
Everyone knows what happened after that, of course. This video - of his speech before the Illinois Senate just before he was voted out of office (I call it Blagojevich's Last Stand) - sums the whole thing up. For me, it was the most memorable part of the whole thing because it sums him up so well: Bombastic, confrontational and ultimately unsuccessful.
