    The fact that Burris is african-american and very qualified was the perfect ploy for Blago.


    I'm telling you, the guy is fearless.

    I really wish Blago didn't do this. Even if this guy is qualified and might be a good pick, he will never be looked that way because he was picked by Blago.

    Marion Barry went to jail and then got reelected, that's not the same thing and that's not really "surviving."

    I tend to look at any politician that comes out of the Illinois Machine that way. Catch my drift?

    Hypocrits?

    How about lets record ALL conversations by ALL politicians when the discuss fund raising? US Political fundraising realities suck. Anyone can tell you that.

    Blagojevich may have been Boasting, Bravodo, or Swagger on the tapes.

    Is Bravodo talk illegal?

    "I'm such a tough bad guy that I am going to hold up that guy's funding till they give me a donation!!!"

    The proper political response should not be: Blagojevich should resign.

    A more real approach could be:
    "I think it may be unfair to take snippets of conversation out of context in trying to accurately determine the Mens Rae, mental state of intent, for any crime. Governor Blagojevich is entitled to the presumption of innocense, as he has claimed. A few recorded snippets of phone conversations do not necessarily accurately represent a deliberate criminal intent."

    In football, players and fans get hyped by overstating their intent, "We are going to Kill Team X!!!" Is this proof of attempted first degree murder if a football fan throws a paper cup on the field?

    What are your own worst intoxicated conversations that you would least like to be re-played on national televsion????

    It's a great pick. It lets them play the race card. You know the Democrats cringe at the notion of keeping a Black American out of a group that now completely lacks them.

    Blago is a prick, but he is a politically astute one.

    Please post a transcript of the your most incriminating appearing pohone conversation, which if taped by the FBI, would appear that you were committing a crime. Ever talked about hour desires to rape a woman, but never actually followed through?

    Many people have ideas for legal activities, like making love, that they express in illegal terms, like a desire to rape a particular woman.

    Should all the men imprisoned who thought or spoke about forcing themselves on a woman, and yet later were able to actaully make lover to her, without her objection?

    I think all the politicians are terrified, because the are all guilty of huffing, puffing, exagerating, about strategies for fundraising. .
