Doyle: It will be tough for Blagojevich to do job

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle is stopping short of calling for embattled Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich to resign.

  Doyle says he doesn't want to get in the middle of Illinois business.

  But Doyle also says he believes there are big decisions the governor of Illinois needs to make that will be tough for Blagojevich to do given his situation.

  The speaker of the Illinois House took the first step toward impeaching the scandal-plagued Blagojevich on Monday.

  He was arrested last week on federal corruption charges.

  Doyle says he was stunned when he heard allegations that his Democratic colleague had schemed to profit from his power to appoint a replacement for the Senate seat vacated by President-elect Barack Obama.
