Blagojevich, Axelrod, Obama, Clinton, Carter

From our friends at "Real Clear Politics" today we read:

"Shortly after President-elect Obama said this afternoon that he had had "no contact" with Gov. Rod Blagojevich regarding his vacant Senate seat, it was reported that Obama senior adviser David Axelrod said last month in a televised interview that Obama has "talked with the governor."

In a statement released tonight, Axelrod took it back. "I was mistaken when I told an interviewer last month that the President-elect has spoken directly to Governor Blagojevich about the Senate vacancy," Axelrod said. "They did not then or at any time discuss the subject."

Perhaps Axelrod has taken semantics from Bill Clinton? In any event, while we assume that president-elect Barack Hussein Obama had no knowledge of "senate-seat-for-sale-gate", we wonder if like Jimmy Carter and his Georgia mafia the soon-to-be president won't be plagued with his Illinois mafia connections?
