23. Everyone's personal feelings for Don Siegelman aside, how far do we go down this particular road?

I'm sorry, but sidestepping the courts, whether we agree or disagree with the verdicts, should not become commonplace, no matter what the party affiliation. Was Siegelman's prosecution politically motivated? Probably. Was Karl Rove the evil mastermind behind all this? Highly probable too. But what keeps any politician, of any political stripe, from crying "political persecution" when they've been caught on the wrong side of the law?
