Another lame effort to link Obama & Blagojevich

Blog ››› ››› JAMISON FOSER

CNN"s Jessica Yellin just said of Barack Obama and Rod Blagojevich: "The two men seemed cordial when they met at a governor's event nine days ago."

CNN then showed video of Obama approaching a line of people, the first of whom was Blagojevich, who can be heard saying "Hello, Mr. President." But in the video, Obama doesn't even stop walking to greet Blagojevich; he spends maybe a few tenths of a second glancing at Blagojevich on his way to someone else.

Were Blagojevich not currently embroiled in scandal, and the media not therefore interested in linking Obama and Blagojevich, it isn't hard to imagine reporters describing the video as evidence of Obama snubbing Blagojevich.
