The calls to resign are raining down, but a spokesman for Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (blah-GOY'-uh-vich) says he's "upbeat," ''positive" and trying to "return to normalcy."
Odds that'll happen seem steep. President-elect Barack Obama and Lt. Gov. Pat Quinn are part of an overwhelming chorus who say it's time for Blagojevich to step down.
Obama chimed in on the scandal yesterday, calling the charges that Blagojevich put Obama's U.S. Senate seat up for sale appalling.
The governor's approval rating is a paltry 8 percent, and if he doesn't call it quits soon the state attorney general says she'll go to the state Supreme Court to have him declared unfit for office. But that's if lawmakers don't start to impeach him first.
