Rezko trial: Jury nears verdict; deadlocked on one count

By Natasha Korecki, Federal Courts Reporter

Jurors in Tony Rezko's trial are near a decision. In a note to U.S. District
Judge Amy St. Eve, jurors indicated "we cannot decide on one count."


St. Eve brought in the panel and gave them an instruction required by law
called the Silvern instruction, which essentially says that they must go
back and keep trying.

"Discuss your differences with an open mind," St. Eve said. "You are
impartial judges of the facts."

The 10-woman, 2-man jury returned to their closed-door deliberations.
The note didn't specify that the jury had reached a consensus on all the
other counts, but that's the assumption we've all drawn.

Jury in Tony Rezko's corruption trial told to keep working

Associated Press - June 2, 2008 4:04 PM ET

CHICAGO (AP) - The judge at political fundraiser Tony Rezko's corruption
trial has told jurors to keep working after they said they can't agree on a
count.


Jurors sent U.S. District Judge Amy J. St. Eve a note Monday saying they
could not "decide on one count."

The note seemed to suggest the jury had reached verdicts on 23 of the
24 counts against Rezko, but it didn't say that specifically.

St. Eve called jurors to the courtroom and told them to listen carefully to
each other and make an effort to reach a unanimous verdict. She then
sent them to continue deliberations, which began May 13.

Not that CQ is a credible magazine, but it is a popular one.

This article lays out (only in polls) the similarities between an Obama vs. Mcain and a Kerry vs. Bush, and how Clinton has an inkling more of a chance. I expect the "analysis" to continue further in the coming weeks.

She may be the only chance at beating McCain for chris'sake!

Many Hollywood TV shows withhold scripts from the actors until the day of the shoot so I assume that Hillary, McCain and Obama may not know the final outcome. Perhaps Hillary is simply told the script requires her to stay in the race. Hillary, McCain and Obama of course will know before the rest of us as they get the final script but it seems that they may not know the outcome yet.

This play may also include a lot of improvisation on the part of the actors just to make the overall experience more interesting. They certainly are told the parameters of the play but for those who know it is as boring as professional wrestling.

Now if it were the UFC it would be awesome though I expect any day now for that too to be taken over and domesticated.

Will She or Won't She?

Quote:
While Young Hillary Clinton fights on with tenacity, the real Hillary Clinton waffles (mmm... waffles). Several reports this morning indicated that she would concede the Democratic presidential nomination to presumed winner Barack Obama tonight. The AP started the dropout rumors, and the Herald picked it up. Now Clinton's campaign says it ain't so, and the Globe reports on the limbo-like situation. The campaign is now clearly saying it "absolutely" won't concede anything until Obama reaches the magic number of 2118 delegates. He currently has 2076.5. Just 41.5 to go! Will everything (or anything) depend on Nebraska come Junely 12? (Answer: no.)




More Obama dirt, fox news style...



and CNN style...

Tomorrow, June 4th there may be a "bombshell"

...normally, I don't worry about these things...from my understanding it's coming from the Republicans and they wanted to wait until he wrapped up the nomination...the stupidity of that is if there is something to it...they could always turn to her for the nomination...


Odd that Clinton was rumored to have quit tonight, and actually did not...

Clinton Says She Will Not Concede Tonight

Carolyn Lochhead, SF Chronicle

The Clinton campaign just put out this announcement: "The AP story is
incorrect. Senator Clinton will not concede the nomination this evening."


Aforesaid AP story: "Hillary Rodham Clinton will concede Tuesday night
that Barack Obama has the delegates to secure the Democratic
nomination, campaign officials said, effectively ending her bid to
be the nation's first female president."

Clinton "open" to being Obama's running mate: party aide

Tue Jun 3, Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday she's open
to the possibility of being Barack Obama's vice presidential running mate,
a Democratic party aide said.


Clinton, who appears on the verge of losing the Democratic presidential
nomination to Obama, made the comment in a conference call with fellow
members of New York's congressional delegation, the aide said.

The party aide quoted Clinton as saying, when asked about being
Obama's running mate: "I am open to it."

Obama 'to win' party nomination

US Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama will clinch his party's
nomination once the final primaries are complete, US media report.


Voters in South Dakota and Montana are going to the polls in the party's
final nominating contests. Based on exit poll data and information from
US media, Mr Obama will secure enough delegates to win the candidacy.

His rival Hillary Clinton has said she will not concede tonight, but is "open"
to becoming Mr Obama's running mate. Mrs Clinton made the comments
in a conference call with other New York lawmakers, US media said.

Montana and South Dakota are completing the primaries, with Mr Obama
only a few delegates short of the 2,118 needed ahead of the polls closing.

If he does as well as expected in Tuesday's contests - where 31 elected
delegates are at stake - he will need to pick up only a handful of
endorsements from the remaining uncommitted "super-delegates" - party
officials with a free choice over who to support - to pass the winning post.

Looks like it's over and Obama's the Democratic nominee. I can't believe it.

Give it a couple of days hdog.

"looks like" indeed

Actually, if you read the news it's very clear that she hasn't quit, and some are even telling her to "fight on".

Not that I am hoping she wins, I could give a ' , but recent developments and rumors (though that is all they are) seem to suggest something fishy going on.

I am still with Rump and Fintan on this one...


Just remember how many times people have said "that's it, she's done for good" and that these comeback waves keep escalating in intensity.

Could be right bri. Part of me thinks of Reagan/Bush but the "polls" show that Hillary would be McCain and Obama wouldn't.

We'll see I guess.
