Hillary Clinton has criticized Barack Obama for accepting political contributions from indicted Chicago businessman and slumlord Antoin Rezko.

Now, it turns out that one of Hillary’s national Co-chairmen of her Presidential campaign has also accepted political contributions from him.

The donations could prove to be a political embarrassment for Clinton, who accused Obama in a South Carolina debate of representing Rezko “in his slum landlord business” when Obama was a young Chicago lawyer.

Rezko has been a patron of Illinois politicians for years and Obama’s connections to Rezko go back more than 15 years. Rezko has contributed thousands of dollars to the campaigns of both Obama and Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Neither has been accused of any wrongdoing.

Fancy that.

Hillary might be embarassed.

Flap wonders if Obama will mention Norman Hsu who is serving time in a California prison for fraud while he is being investigated and indicted by the Feds for illegal Democrat campaign contributions.

Oh yeah, Obama took money from Hsu too.

So, never mind.

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, center, endorses Republican presidential hopeful Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., right, as former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani looks on at left, after a tour of Solar Integrated Technologies in Los Angeles, Calif., Thursday, Jan. 31, 2008.

Arnold, the Governator, endorses Senator John McCain for President today. When asked by reporters why Schwarzenegger had not endorsed McCain previously for President he blamed Rudy Giuliani (with a laugh) who he called a friend, also.

An endorsement is one thing but will Arnold and the GOP establishment in California start to open their wallets for McCain. And, will Rudy Giuliani who endorsed McCain yesterday also help in bolstering McCain’s woefully poor campaign coffers?

Arnold was good for another chit. Tonight show host and Arnold friend Jay Leno will be hosting both McCain and Giuliani tonight on the NBC Tonight Show.

In the meantime, Mitt Romney has upped the financial ante by scheduling millions of dollars in ad buys in Super Tuesday states that go to the polls in less than a week.

Update:

Texas Governor Rick Perry has just announced his endorsement of John McCain. Perry last October had endorsed Mayor Rudy Giuliani and, in fact, on Monday of this week was campaigning for Rudy in Florida.

Wow. This is a quick transition.

Looks like a tidal wave of endorsements for the Arizona Senator.

Nancy Reagan is on board for Team McCain, Rudy Giuliani endorsed the Senator yesterday and California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger a few minutes ago endorsed John McCain for President.

In the press remarks, Senator McCain mentioned that Texas Governor Rick Perry will be endorsing him later today.

The mainstream GOP is lining up for McCain as Mitt Romney’s campaign has announced a massive advertising buy in Super Tuesday states.

The campaign for the nomination is on…….
