Keep the Pressure on Blagojevich
President-elect Obama should continue to call for the Governor Blagojevich to resign. He should re-enforce that he has not contacted the governor nor authorized any of his staff to contact the Governor regarding his successor if such is the case. He should also fully cooperate with any related requests from investigators.
To the more general question of how leaders should respond in these situations, he or she should address the issue quickly and forthrightly. Delaying or dodging the issue is a mistake if the individual involved has noting to hide. If errors in judgment occurred that did not involve a violation of law then the person should admit them and commit to do one's best to not repeat the error in judgment.
