From the Obama information ministry…..
“Barack Obama will host an economic discussion with Democratic governors (Friday) at the Chicago History museum. At the meeting, Barack Obama and the governors will discuss working together to reverse the effect of eight years of the Bush economy on state budgets and looking beyond conventional Washington thinking to develop innovative solutions to the economic challenges the American people are facing every day.
From Gov. Blagojevich spokesman Abby Ottenhoff—cutting loose from the governor soon–to Sun-Times Springfield bureau chief David McKinney Thursday afternoon about whether the Rezko tainted Blagojevich will surface at an Obama event …”he has been invited, but I’m not sure yet if he’ll go or if he’ll be touring more flooded communities. We should have a better sense in the morning.” UPDATE Ottenhoff just phoned to say Blagojevich will not attend.
