    Ousted Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich may be facing prison time, but he remains as light-hearted as ever.

    Outside his home Wednesday afternoon, Blagojevich introduced his limousine driver, John Wade, who had just shared with the former governor a picture of himself with famed boxer Muhammad Ali taken in 1967.

    "Isn't that something?" Blagojevich said, admiring the photo.

    Will Blago float like a butterfly?  Or will jail time sting like a bee?  Only time will tell.
