Blagojevich as Impeached Super Delegate

You wonder if Illinois will send the Gov to Denver with the impeachment clouds gathering over him.
As the Legislative session ended Saturday, House Speaker Michael Madigan sent a clear message about all that's standing between Gov. Rod Blagojevich and impeachment proceedings.

Asked if the embattled governor would need to face a criminal indictment before lawmakers would seek to boot him from office, Madigan replied: "It's going to take 60 votes in the House."

The response drew chuckles from reporters peppering the House speaker at a rare Capitol news conference. But it underscored just how far talk of impeachment has come in recent months -- and how quickly it could become a reality under the right conditions.
