  • Ummmm .... and I have the ability to form an opinion about this based on WHAT ?!

    If a jury - folks who are informed about the DETAILS - have decided in his favor, then really who am I, a mere viewer of TV clips and reader of commentary, to make a pronouncement?

    Before I form any opinion, I would want to listen to every minute of those FBI phone tapes, etc.

    Now he continues with his political career, or not.
