This should be no surprise to anyone that the attorney's on Rod Blagojevich's defense team would subpoena President Barack Obama and members of his
staff about this case. However, I find it highly unlikely that President Obama or anyone on his staff for that matter will appear in court to testify.
In any case, they will most likely find a legal loophole in the subpoena to shirk the order to appear in an Illinois courtroom. In the case of the
President and his Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, I believe they know more about their dealings with Blagojevich than they are leading on to the media
and the American people.
Barack Obama and Blagojevich used to be buddies, and he can shrug off their close relationship all he wants because of the scandal, but the fact
remains. If criminality occurred at the hands of Blagojevich, President Obama would have to of known something about it. No one makes it in Chicago
politics without doing favors for others, and I am certain that Barack Obama (a virtual nobody before gaining the national stage upon becoming Senator
in 2004) has done many favors to get where he is today.
The thing about favors, is that once they are made they must be reciprocated one day. The thing with Blagojevich may have been another favor, but went
astray when Blagojevich was caught on those FBI wiretaps. Now, the former governor is out for blood, because he apparently believes that the cold
shoulder by the Obama Administration in lieu of the controversy was a slight. Since being indicted, Rod Blagojevich has been stacking the deck in his
favor with the media blitz he has been involved in and using the media as a means to sway potential jurors in his favor. When the trial begins on June
3rd, expect fireworks unlike any political trial the country has ever seen.
