The Blago Case

Hard as it is to believe, the news on Wednesday evening informed us that Blagojevich's jury can't decide if he's guilty of anything!

On what planet do you suppose those jurors are deliberating? The leaked phone calls alone seem enough to convict Rod. What more do they need?

Or is it the case that his intent was clear, but the verifiable actions were not?

If Blago skips on this quasi-technicality of there being no directly witnessed corrupt activity, but everybody knows he wanted to sell the Senate seat, then we have a problem. In this case, I think an ordinary citizen would feel that Blago's stated intent is sufficient to put him behind bars.
