18. I questioned whether Blagojevich had done anything in the beginning of this.

I'm not saying he's innocent, but the things that they talked about sounded a lot like business as usual to me. There is a big difference between bribery and extortion, and exchanging political favors, (except in the Siegelman case.)

It just didn't seem to me that they'd found anything serious enough to nail a governor.
