Have we been looking at the wrong election?
Connect dots. If Obama's seat is worth millions to Blago today, what was it worth in 2003-2004 when it was emptying with the retirement of Republican Peter Fitzgerald? And how did Blago parley that empty seat back then into a victory for his special fixer guy Tony Rezko's protege and student of the Chicago Way, Barack Obama?
I'd say that question merits a close and detailed look.
