Can Obama still be stopped?

I never thought the citizenship lawsuits offered much hope (see here for why). But could the Blagojevich scandal -- linked to the long-simmering Rezko affair -- stop Obama?

And why was Blago arrested now, on other (more recent) corruption charges, before a complete case could be brought against him on the Board Games matter? Why did the arrest occur before the choice of senator-elect, before the pay-off money for that appointment actually exchanged hands? Two possible (linked) reasons spring to mind:

1. Fitz wants to pressure Blago into testifying against an even bigger fish. Right now, the only bigger fish is Obama.....

This could finally be it. The sleaze we've known about for so long, which the MSM has so carefully kept below the radar of the mass public mind, may be about to hit the fan at last.

I daresay most of Illinois knew about Blago.'s corruption, or heard whispers of it.

My question is--was it Obama's duty to conduct an investigation, assuming he heard rumors of corruption?

I think this is a gray area.

I mean, McCain was almost tainted by scandal as well. Lots of people brush up against criminals.

The Clintons certainly did.

I think unless there was a specific deal or specific conversation, Obama is not liable.

Do you know of evidence to the contrary? Besides rumor and speculation I mean?

Nothing is impossible, I know that.

But the facts may be hard to find.

See the "Cannonfire" link (on the words "Blagojevich scandal" above) and subsequent postings on Cannonfire. There's no smoking gun yet, but pretty good grounds to think the scandal may reach that high.

Remember, Joseph Cannon is the guy who debunked the fake-birth-certificate story. He's not prone to let wishful thinking get the better of him.

At the eleventh hour, perhaps.....
