    I believe much of the discussion was between him and his staff. If a senate candidate was involved they'll probably get kicked under the bus as well. According to this report Obama played it straight in response to Rod's offers.

    Governor fumes as Obama team plays it straight

    "Unless I get something real good for [Senate Candidate 1], sh**, I'll just send myself [to the Senate], you know what I'm saying?"
    Sometimes I think Rod is just stupid, he probably believes he wasn't breaking the law. Either that or he's taking a shot at claiming diminished capacity.

    Ignore the man behind the curtain Jall, rsixing isn't here to debate. He already said as much. Its why he's still peddling this bull****. The math isn't "close" at all. He's still yet to show in any way a systemic amount of corruption in Alaska even close to that in Illinois. He's pointed out one person and tried to make his point, horridly and with complete fail. He got called on his little partisan snipe and had a hissy fit. No one previously was talking about "sides", but simply talking about Illinois politics as a whole but...as he later admitted....his comment was nothing but hyper partisan hackery trying to go at the "other side", despite the fact he was the first to really interject "sides" into this. All becuase someone DARED to question his ever so precious Obama. Where everyone else in the thread was at best connecting Obama to a decades old, multiple politicial, system wide corrupt political institution he tried to say a single corrupt senator is somehow "sort of" the same of it for no other reason than to score political points. When he got called on it, he suddenly didn't want to talk about someone disagreeing with his hack point and now its "just a joke", which if that's the case I'd advise him to not make ****ty, erronious jokes unless he plans on backing it up.

    Really, there's no point in comment on it. He doesn't want to debate politics, he wants to rant stand about politics. As evident by him not responding once in any actual factual way to anyone questioning his bogus, erronious statement.

    Not meant to hurt your feelings. Though thanks for just further showing you're the liberal equivilent of some of our right-wing partisan hacks, who has no care for actual debate or backing up outrageous claims you make when called about it and instead result to pointless little diatribes like "hurts my wittle feeweings" and "boohoo".

    Once again, i'm sorry if you're offended or upset that I dare to respond to the statements you make on a message board about debating politics but if you continue to make poorly thought out statements I'll continue to show why they're poor.

    What irony coming from people who claimed that there was guilt by association of the entire Bush Administration in the comedic spoof known as the Plame affair.

    The only time people like you appear to be skeptical is if the person has an "R" next to their names; but if you have a "D", you require irrefutable proof and suggest that guilt by association is only righteous if YOU do it.

    It truly is a comedy we see unfolding in the Congress and Illinois scumbag politics; it might even be funny if it wasn't so harmful to the credibility of our political processes.

    Actually I was a republican during the Plame affair so you're hypocritically doing what you're claiming I did; because I'm a dem I'm guilty by association. How ironic is that? (a retorical question)

    The only time people like you appear to be skeptical is if the person has an "R" next to their names; but if you have a "D", you require irrefutable proof and suggest that guilt by association is only righteous if YOU do it.
    Sometimes that's true, at times we're all guilty of being partisan. Excuse me if you feel you should be excluded from that.

    It truly is a comedy we see unfolding in the Congress and Illinois scumbag politics; it might even be funny if it wasn't so harmful to the credibility of our political processes.
    First you would have to prove our political processes has "credibility", not just Chicago or Illinois politics, to declare this as harmful. No. Methinks this is just another example of where our political processes has taken us and further proves how corrupt man can be given the opportunity and position of power.

    I think the sentiment is shared by most that it would be a relief it turns out Obama was not involved in the corruption. I'm not proclaiming its so, but that I hope it is so. What a terrible blow to our country it would be to find this out now. How we show this sentiment varies, some are in denial, others think its a conspiracy, and others are laughing at Illinois while secretly dreading what is to come.

    This is one of your more sensible posts; we are in agreement on this one.

    As much as I disagree with Obama's politics, this would be a disaster if Obama is connected in any way with the shady politics surrounding almost all his past associations in Chicago politics.

    It is my sincere hope that he is not dragged into this case; but better to vet him now than to wait until AFTER his inauguration in my opinion.

    On Monday, the Illinois General Assembly will propose and vote on a new bill that would strip Governor Rod Blagojevich of the power to appoint a new Illinois Senator to replace Barack Obama. The seat would be filled via a statewide general election. Blagojevich could veto the bill, but the General Assembly could then in turn overturn his veto. Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan has promised to seek a court restraining order on behalf of Illinois citizens if Blagojevich dares to appoint anyone before the new bill takes effect.
