"Appellate judges lob tough questions about Blagojevich prosecution"

From the Chicago Sun-Times:

Chief among the questions the justices wanted answered: just what separates Blagojevich’s actions from the “legal horse trading” politicians typically rely upon to advance their careers

And: if they’d been held to the same standard as Blagojevich, wouldn’t venerated figures like former President Dwight Eisenhower and former Supreme Court Justice Earl Warren have been locked up for 14 years, too?

Hat tip: How Appealing, which also links to other coverage.
