An Interesting Coincidence?

Posted: Dec 11, 2008 9:59 PM
Byron York details an amazing phone conversation in which Blagojevich and some others -- including an unnamed advisor to Obama -- discuss the possibility of a three-way favor trade that would result in Obama friend Valerie Jarrett being named to Obama's Senate seat.

What's even more interesting is this Wall Street Journal Washington wire report, revealing that coincidentally (?), Valerie Jarrett removed her name from the running immediately afterwards.  Hmmm.

There is much more to be learned about what happened and why.  Perhaps all of this wouldn't have been as much of a shock to the public had, say, the MSM devoted 1/100th as much attention to the Chicago machine that produced Barack Obama as it did to the email from one disgruntled Wasilla Democrat, trashing Governor Palin.
