Even the pro-Obama media needs to fill column inches and air time, so transforming a non-issue (which you will hear Olbermann call it, if you listen closely) into a challenge to the transition team's credibility about the Blagojevich debacle is fair play. Right? Well, it certainly isn't cricket!
If Obama and co. had come out with a loud, vociferous self-defence from the start, they'd be accused of "protesting too much" (who remembers Nixon's line, "I am not crook"?).
