Gov. Rod Blagojevich, worried he would be a "distraction" given the impeachment and criminal charges against him, won't be going to Washington for President-elect Barack Obama's inaugural festivities, a spokesman said today.
The governor was invited to several inaugural events, but won't make the trip, Blagojevich spokesman Lucio Guerrero said.
"He doesn't want to be a distraction from Obama, and unfortunately he thinks (his presence) would be," he said.

Why should a ‘Rat invitation to Blagojevich be rescinded? Peas in a pod.
Oh Darn...he had a poem all picked out too!!
A Maya Angelou ditty: “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings’
That’s my excuse too - I don’t want to be a distraction.
“The governor *WAS INVITED* to several inaugural events, but won’t make the trip.”
What more can I emphasize here?
