    It has nothing to do with Obama?

    Let's see in 4 years.

    In the meantime (Honk! Honk!) watch Obama throw him under the bus.

    If the governor did something illegal why shouldn't Obama hrow him under the bus?

    Because clearly he's a partisan and will side with his Governor until the end....

    Oh wait he must be an ideologue because he's not a partisan, but he's filling his cabinet with centrists...

    Could it be? He's a human being without blind loyalties or Utopian dreams?

    I'm betting he'll turn out to be something worse a partisan or an ideologue. Some mutated hybrid of Neo-Conservatism and Progressive Democracy.

    The real question ladies, is who was the Gov. talking to about being an ambassador or getting a cabinet position with. There is more here, and if the FBI has Obama on tape making deals to get the person he wants to take over his seat...
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    You're really reaching... When another [alleged] crooked Chicago Democrat politician is arrested, this time after a 3 year FBI probe, all you can mutter is... "Palin"! That's pretty pathetic considering that she was not found guilty of anything and certainly appears to be pretty damned honest! You're probably right... it might be Bush's fault... he personnaly targeted the governor (like shooting fish in a septic tank)! Don't worry, perhaps Obama's trend-setting nature (you know, first office of president-elect, first weekly news conference of the president-elect, etc.) will allow him to pardon all crooks with a D next to their name as soon as he takes office (rather than wait 4 or 8 years), perhaps even before they are found guilty!!!
    Obama lied... Ambassador Stevens died!

    I wonder how Patrick Fitzgerald's indictment against the governor will be received by those who thought his indictment against Scooter Libby was a joke. Will you claim that these allegations are a joke too? Or did Fitzgerald turn into a reputable US Attorney since he stopped being the special prosecutor?

    I don't see this situation implicating Obama. I really don't.

    I don't think in this specific case there has been anything illegal done by Obama. I think, though, that this highlights Illinois politics; this is really how they operate. Chicago runs everything, and it's pretty much run like organized crime. You can not come up through Illinois politics clean; it is nigh impossible.

    growing up in the dirty politics of Illinois plays a large part in why I lean libertarian. I'm constantly reminded of why we need to limit power.

    This certainly doesn't help ex gov Ryan in his pursuit of parole either.

Although Obama does not appear to be involved here, this caper does put a spotlight on the cesspool from which Obama obtained his political power!
    And may even touch President Elect Obama. This is definately news to watch.

    Lets see we have got Obama(Chicago), Pelosi(San Fransisco) and Reid(Nevada/Las Vegas). Should be an interesting 4 years.
