Fight Other Battles
President-elect Obama should do what he is doing - "taking the high road" - and encourage Gov. Blagojevich to resign. There is no indication the President-elect is involved in this issue. I don't think it is going to impact him that much. He shouldn't get involved in this mess.
In terms of recommending someone for the Senate seat, I think he should not get involved in the selection. Who knows what has transpired in the past? Any recommendation that he makes could turn out to be a mistake if new information comes to light.
Obama has other, more important battles to fight in the future. He should focus on the issues that are going to make the biggest difference to the United States of America. This is not one of those issues.
In general, I believe a leader should offer full cooperation with any investigation of scandal. I am often asked my opinion on how leaders with ethical issues should be coached. I do not believe that leaders who commit ethics violations should be coached at all - I believe that they should be fired.
