Rumor has it that IL Gov. Rod Blagojevich wants to appear on The View to tell his side of the story. The governor's public image is badly bruised right now, thanks to federal corruption charges, impeachment by the Illinois House, and an impending trial in the Illinois Senate. Blangojevich is ready to make his case to the country, and apparently he feels that Whoopi Goldberg has shown some sympathy for his predicament.
Blagojevich's previous statements may give us a preview of what he might say on national TV. He told the AP yesterday:
Dec. 9 to my family, to us, to me, is what Pearl Harbor Day was to the United States. It was a complete surprise, completely unexpected. And just like the United States prevailed in that, we’ll prevail in this.
Considering the governor's capacity to say outlandish things, an appearance on The View might get messy. Then again, maybe he just needs a chance to explain.
