"Questions Remain" - RNC Ad

The RNC is attacking Obama over the Blagojevich Scandal (first reported on at Berman Post: Democratic Governor Rod Blagojevich (Illinois) Tried to Sell Senate Seat). I do not think that any of this will stick to Obama directly, but I would not say the same thing about Emanuel. My belief based on what has happened so far it that Emanuel called Blagojevich to tell him who Obama wanted or Blagojevich called him to have that conversation. Blagojevich then asked something along the lines of "whats in it for me" and then Emanuel told him to "go f*** yourself" (or something with similar meaning). Emanuel then hung up the phone, but did not call the feds to report the conversation. I think that is what they are hiding, but I also think they have that conversation on tape. Again, this is purely conjecture on my part, but it seems to make sense. In this way I do not think that Emanuel broke any laws, but he failed to act when most would say he should have. Such lack of action goes against the type of administration that Obama has been promising. If I am right, it seems likely that Emanuel will either fall on his sword or get thrown under the bus.
