It is clear from what transcripts we have of Hot Rod on the phone that the Obama camp rejected his attempts to sell them Obama's old Senate seat.
Then why is Obama being evasive? Why is Rahm Emanuel silent? How come some Obama flunky doesn't just come out and say, "Hot Rod wanted this, that and the other thing and I told him to get bent."
If there is evidence of Obama wrongdoing I don't see it. Why cover up a non-crime? Are they afraid that Fitzgerald might Scooter Libby them; nail someone in a process crime tangentially relate to the case?
Or is Obama afraid that the world would discover that his lordship is stained with sin like the rest of us?
