Have Politicians Stolen Our Ideals?

Former Illinois Governor Blagojevich awaits a verdict in his alleged corruption case. If convicted he'd be the fourth governor found guilty of committing crimes while in office. Have these politicians robbed us of our chances for good, clean government?  Has our political process been stolen? DePaul University Political Science Professor J. Harry Wray explains what we should expect these days from our elected officials.
