Questions remain? What questions?

The GOP, Gods Own Party is still trying to to cast the dirt of the Blagojevich-case on Obama. Those Republicans are not smart people. What will the benefit be for Obama to let the governor sell his Senate seat for the remaining two years to the highest bidder? Rod Blagojevich is acting on his self, his own greed. But the National Republican Commission (NRG) goes back to 2002 when Blagojevich was elected and reports that Obama publicly offered his help to the new-elected governor and, how amazing, he did the same at 27 July 2006. Is he supposed to declare war against his fellow member of the Democratic Party? Oh yes, David Axelrod is also familiar with the governor. He lives in Illinois, isn't it? So he knows who is the governor of the state. But did he say that the governor should earn a lot of money by selling Obama's Senate seat to the highest bidder? On 10 December 2008 Blagojevich is indicted and then comes the question for Obama: "Are you aware of any conversations between Blagojevich or John Harris and any of your top-aides, including Rahm?" The answer of the expert in law is clear: "It would be inappropriate to for me to remark on the situation beyond the facts that I know. And that's the fact that I didn't discuss this issue with the governor at all."
So, what is wrong with that answer?
Next question: Mr. Rahm Emanuel was among the few people in Obama's circle who occasional spoke to Mr. Blagojevich, but he declined to answer questions. That's all. Does it mean that Rahm Emanuel favors the private pay-to-play-game of Blagojevich? What will benefit it for Emanuel? Nothing, of course. If one person of the Obama-circle should have known what the governor was playing they should have reported that to the FBI immediately.

Even John McCain is not playing the game with the RNC.
On ABC’s “This Week,” host George Stephanopoulos asked: “The chairman of the Republican National Committee, Mike Duncan, has been highly critical of the way President- elect Obama has dealt with this.
"He's had a statement every single day, saying that the Obama team should reveal all contacts they've had with Governor [Rod] Blagojevich. He says that Obama's promise of transparency to the American people is now being tested. Do you agree with that?”

McCain replied: “I think that the Obama campaign should and will give all information necessary. You know, in all due respect to the Republican National Committee and anybody — right now, I think we should try to be working constructively together, not only on an issue such as this, but on the economy stimulus package, reforms that are necessary. And so, I don't know all the details of the relationship between President-elect Obama's campaign or his people and the governor of Illinois, but I have some confidence that all the information will come out. It always does, it seems to me.”

Just this morning, the Republican National Committee released a Web video called “Questions Remain.”

“The video highlights the evolving explanations delivered by President-elect Obama and his advisers concerning their contact with the embattled and scandal-plagued Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich despite Obama’s promises to instill greater transparency and confidence in government,” the party’s announcement said.
They want the world to know that the USA also after January 20, 2009, will be ruled by a gangster.
