ABC's Barbara Walters interviews Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich in one of his zippy suits.


How did we ever elect this duffus? Now we have an explanation for why Blagojevich was in so much money trouble and, ergo, he tried to sell Barack Obama's Senate seat or squeeze others for cash.


He spent all his money on clothes. He and his wife as much as $400,000.

And we thought he was fixated with his hair

  • Duffus, yes, but a well-dressed duffus! You have to give him that!

  • At least not a sartorial slob like Quinn.
