SHARE Masterful Memorization by Blagojevich

Politics is nonstop entertainment in Chicago. Almost nothing can top some of the recent antics of our well-coiffed governor.

Here's a little trip down memory lane with Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, before that whole arrest thing. These days, Blagojevich has been dominating the headlines both locally and nationally.

Originally aired Sept. 23, 2002
