Would Going On The View Help Blagojevich?

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.

I'd like to see him go on the view, just to see what the "women" do to him.

I am so tired of this man. What is the point of him still trying. He's clearly guilty. He needs to be charged, tried, and convicted. He's has Illinois embarrassed enough by his actions. They need to move onto new news, good news for their state. And if he was going to do a television show, then why not do a proper new show interview? NOT the view. They would never ask this man all the right questions because they would be trying to put a joke into most of their questions so the audience can laugh.

Out of all the reputable news/commentary shows there are on the television, why...oh why...would he choose The View? Does anyone watch that show on purpose? The last time I saw it, I was sitting in a waiting room at the hospital...listening to those hens squabble just about made me want to jab my eyes out with voted "No. It would just make him look ridiculous."

John Edwards is still on their couch? Must be uncomfortable for their other guests.

Piper, that is if they can bring themselves to get John Edwards off their couch, right?

Being a scandal-ridden Democrat, the ladies of the view will be drooling all over him.

OK, speaking as a former Chicagoan, no, no, no. Illinois politics are generally corrupt, and all a Blago appearance will do is further cement that opinion in peoples' minds!

What he says or does not say in any forum will help or hinder Blagojevich. The View has nothing to do with it.

:rotfl: sarah! I'm all for any public Blago appearance--especially when he starts drawing comparisons between himself and Pearl Harbor and quoting Tennyson. SWEET!

Going on the View doesn't help anyone.

Only if I was a hair stylist.
I agree with Stephley. I am from Illinois....he is an embarrassment!!! I cannot believe that he continues to try and fight this. No matter what, the Federal Government has something on him, and hes a corrupt governor. He needs to shut his, sit down, and stop looking like a fool. Obviously he's made some bad decisions, stop hiding behind hat a good person you shouldve been, and own up to what you did! Innocent or Not, theres something wrong and I am so annoyed that he is my governor. Good bye BLAGO! We dont like you at all.....never have, never will! Fix your hair while your at it!

Why doesn't he appear on local shows and speak to the people of his state since they're the ones affected by the mess? In addition to targeting the right audience, he'd bring national attention to local commentators, maybe making new friends in local media.

he shouldn't have been such a dumb prick in the first place. And to compare it to Pearl Harbor! :ROTFL:

He was already on the news last night talking about how this is affecting him and his family.

The View? I guess I think of the late night shows, Leno or Letterman or SNL, as where people usually go to do image repair. Or a sit-down with Matt Lauer or Diane Sawyer.
