Blagojevich impeached

So the Illinois House voted to impeach Governor Rod Blagojevich today.
Next up: a trial in the state senate.

One thing to remember concerning this is: it doesn't happen very often.
If you go here, you see that only 11 state governors in the whole history of the United States have ever been impeached. The last one, Evan Meacham of Arizona, occurred in 1988. So this is quite an historical event we have going here; it doesn't happen very often. Not to mention the spectacle of it--don't you think Blagojevich will put on quite a show in attempting to defend himself? I do.
