There you go. Now, as the years go by, you can gradually shift that to "Rahm's proven involvement with convicted criminal Blagovitch" and hint darkly at the "coverup."
Like this: by 2010 or so, you should be able to say, with a straight face, "It's no surprise that the Obama administration is in bed with (controversial figure du jour), his chief of staff launched his career by shaking down the Chicago political scene with his buddy the jail bird Blagovitch. The only reason Blagovitch is doing time and Rahm is still collecting kickbacks in the White House is Obama's thugs made some offers that couldn't be refused."
The Clinton years taught us that every allegation, innuendo, crazy lie, and hand waving guilt-by-association must go into the box marked "reasons to hate and mistrust the Clintons" where they must remain for all time, accumulating, commingling, and interacting like a bad chemistry experiment.
The important thing is volume,
since the raw materials are going to be poor, at best, and the alchemical magic of compost in the dark. So it's never too early to start packing that box with "reasons to hate and mistrust Obama", because the consumers of that heady swill are never going to remember or care that any given bit of offal that got tossed in was just a casual slander or lurid fantasy.
"Of course the Obama administration is the most corrupt in American history", you can say. "Just look at the size
of that thing!"
