    You concisely summarized it for me.

    Thanks!

    Never, never brave me, nor my fury tempt:
      Downy wings, but wroth they beat;
    Tempest even in reason's seat.

      linked at HuffPo by an investigative reporter who was talking about the Rezko story and why it wouldn't die.  Apparently, the Obama camp has refused to comment on it for more than a year which has only served to fan the flames in the media.  Kind of like the Clintons ignoring Whitewater thinking that they could make it go away, the Obama folks seem to think that they can kill the story by staying mum.  The problem is that that strategy generally backfires with the media.  They make stuff up when the response to a question is "no comment".  It isn't fair, but it is pretty standard and that is why developing a narrative no matter how dull or boring is so important.  Lawyers always make this mistake at some point in their public lives.  The reporter made the point that if the Obama camp had come out hard with too much information a year ago this story would be dead by now, but now he reckons that it is on the verge of ramping up especially with the timing of the trial.  I hope the Obama camp has figured out something to say this time around.
