    Just like the people of Iraq, many here do not want what is or has gone before, but in order to get change, many must go down.

    It's not always the top, but is most often, as with a fish, the rot starts at the head:

    City Room™ - Metro - What Will Obama Do With Fitzgerald?

    Right now it's difficult to find all the Illinois prosecutions he's been successful at, they are many. He's made it very clear, he doesn't want a promotion, he wants to remain here and continue the investigations. We need him.

    If he gets a promotion, something's up or someone is being paid back.

    Best thing that happened to Chi-town in years.

    LOL, just what I was thinking.

    Personally, I'm into it when any corrupt government official gets prosecuted. I doubt you'll find many liberals defending Blagovich.

    Which is in stark contrast to the days when republicans were defending Scooter Libby to the hilt, and calling Fitzgerald a partisan hack.

    I wonder if the "sudden" appreciation republicans have for Fitzgerald has more to do with extreme partisan hackery, than it does for actual respect for the rule of law?

    Fitzgerald is the one that got Libby. He doesn't seem to care a whit as to what a man's politics are, if he is breaking the law, he goes after him. A good man, wish we had more like him.

    Not me. I thought the case on Libby was overblown, but not his take. Search, the posts are there.

    No, the Libby case was not overblown. In the outing of Plame, the business front that she, and several other agents used, was also outed, effectively outing the other agents, and their contacts in other nations. That really screwed us over in trying to recruit more contacts. This is a case of clear Treason. Treason for political spite. Heads should have rolled right up to the top, so no matter how partisan the person, they would not even consider doing such a thing again.
