Upstate Gratitude

(fm the BC thread "Enemy At the Gates")

More Blago tapes coming out. Not sure what the prosecution point is. From what I heard it sounded like Obama asked for Valerie Jarrett to get the Senate seat and Blago was saying that if he did he would dead meat in Illinois politics so he would need a safe harbor job. Blago's aide then suggested that he play up how he had helped advance Obama's agenda when making his pitch for a job. Neither of those, especially the asking for himself based on his loyalty in taking a political bullet and advancing the liberal agenda, sound illegal.

Blago has a point here, this makes Obama look worse than the Governor.
