    Whether Obama keeps Fitzgerald as US Attorney for Chicago or not will tell us a lot about our new President.

    From the Chicago Tribune:

    Perhaps the most significant reason I didn't want Obama to win, Chicago desperately needs Fitzgerald, he's close to indicting Blogo, closing in on the top of city hall, many are already in jail. My happy dance will be when Blogo joins Ryan in penitentiary. One dem, one rep, two IL governors. *sigh*

    Like I said it will be a good way to judge Obama. If he does not interfere than perhaps Obama is a man of integrity and goodwill who simply has misguided economic policies.

    Seems to me that he wouldn't pledge to the Tribune editorial board not to promote and move him, something he said he doesn't want. McCain said he'd keep him here.

    Oh well, one can't expect someone that is beholden to the machine to want it cleaned up. I heard Bill Daley is to be put on staff.

    If Obama said he'll keep him, I guess it would be too much to ask that people wait and make statements about being beholden to the machine until after he goes back on his word.

    It seems ya'll are trying and convicting Obama before he does something.

    I know, I know, you're only treating him like Bush was treated. The difference being you won't admit you were wrong if and when it proves you are. and that is what makes me sick.

    Umm, read again what I posted. I SAID Obama would not pledge to keep Fitzgerald in Chicago.

    I'm sorry you don't feel well.

    Remind me of how Bush has been proven wrong on the accusations you dumbshits keep making? Ohh wait, I forgot, the left does not need evidence it just needs to say something over and over for years till it just is true.

    YOU make me sick.
