    regarding Candidate 5 may well be more along the lines of Blagojevich's insane ravings than being the truth. Everyone and their dog knew that Blagojevich was in Fitzgerald's gun sights. It seems implausible that Jesse Jackson, Jr., or any other rational human, would have been so phenomenally stupid as to make any illegal offers to  Blagojevich knowing full well that the Feds were likely wiretapping him.

    Yesterday some reporter (I think it was Michael Isikoff) commented that Jesse Jackson, Jr. did not have access to the kind of money that was being discussed regarding Candidate 5. Also, MSNBC just reported that Jackson will be talking with the FBI and that he was told he is not an FBI target.
