what would you ask G-Rod's press secretary?

Add and discuss questions in the comments.

Knowing what he knows now, would he have voted for the Iraq War?

How is the Iraq War different from what he envisioned?

What media outlets does Rod read, watch or listen to on a regular basis?

What was the breakdown in communication in the case of “Red” Burchyett and his wheelchair? Why did it take almost a month between when the story was reported in the Southern Illinoisan of Carbondale and when Blagojevich heard about it? Why didn’t Blagojevich’s appointees reflect Blagojevich’s values in this case?

Is Blagojevich satisfied with the mechanisms that exist for the state to communicate to employers obligations they have under the law?

What kind of election reform does Blagojevich favor?

Does Blagojevich expect his ad campaign about “equal pay” to reduce the gap between men and women? How is the state monitoring progress?

Does Blagojevich think it’s unseemly when party “A”, who subcontracts work from party “B”, gives $10,000+ political contributions to an elected official and then the elected officials gives $100,000+ contracts to party “B”? What sort of campaign finance rules should be enacted to bolster confidence that campaign contributions are not just regulated bribery?

If he had it to do over again, what would Blagojevich have done differently in the case of the flu vaccine purchase?

Does Blagojevich attribute any of his actions vis-à-vis Frank Schmidt’s dump as being motivated by personal feelings? Or were all his actions driven by appropriate enforcement of applicable state laws?

Why was Blagojevich off by a factor of 100 in estimating the number of people that would participate in the RX Buying Club?

Are Blagojevich’s wind farms going to be like Bush’s Mars mission?

What causes Illinois veterans to not get benefits—educational and health—to which they are entitled?

What is wrong with how Illinois funds education? How should it be fixed?

The Chicago Tribune has suggested Blagojevich is keeping three vacancies on the Gaming Board so he can quickly propose a major gambling expansion and appoint three rubber stamps (a majority of the five person board) to get the expansion approved without a long discussion. If this isn’t the Governor’s plan, why is he keeping these three vacancies open?

How many people has the DNR hired since Blagojevich took office? How many of these people actively supported Blagojevich’s campaign? How many people has the DNR laid off since Blagojevich took office? How many of these people actively supported Blagojevich’s campaign?

What annual salary does it take for you to spin G-Rod's spiel with a straight face, let alone sleep well or gaze into a mirror without compunction?
