"Humanizing" Rod Blagojevich

    During a recent conversation with his 5-year-old daughter, Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich says she asked him, "Daddy, will you still be governor on my birthday?” Blagojevich says he tried to explain to the little girl that being governor is not the most important thing in life. 

    The governor told the story after being asked about the effect of the impeachment crisis and the federal corruption investigation on his family. 

    Sources close to the governor tell me that the long-term purpose of the impeachment week media blitz is to "humanize" Rod Blagojevich.   They concede it will have no affect on the outcome of the Senate trial, but it might have some impact on the jury to be selected for Blagojevich's criminal trial.
