'Chicago' magazine writer Carol Felsenthal dubbed Gov. Rod Blagojevich as 'Governor Sunshine' in a 2003 profile.

Eight Forty-Eight continued its look at Rod Blagojevich following his sentencing hearing by talking to a woman who has profiled many embattled political figures. Back in 2003, Carol Felsenthal’s profile of the then newly-elected governor coined a new nickname for Blagojevich, "Governor Sunshine." Since then, the Chicago magazine writer has kept her eye on Blagojevich, his wife Patti and his brother Robert Blagojevich.
