Blago's Alternate Universe

Paul Vallas is now the superintendent of New Orleans' Recovery School District.

Which got us to wondering: If Vallas had won the Illinois Democratic nomination for governor in 2002 and had gone on to become governor instead of Rod Blagojevich, what do you suppose Rod would be doing right now?

1. Screwing up a three-car funeral.

2. Running FEMA.

3. Subprime lender.

4. Heckling Jacque Jones from the right field bleachers at Wrigley.

5. Two words: Elvis impersonator. Two more: Carson City.

6. Driver and "body man" for Barack Obama.

7. Mowing Dick Mell's lawn.

8. Ho-Chunk blackjack dealer.

9. Mismanaging one of Tony Rezko's apartment buildings.

10. Divorced, unemployed and applying for state-subsidized health insurance.
