Blagojevich is utterly delusional, a real trial would have been fun to see but embarrasing for many.

There doesn't seem to be anything about Blagojevich that isn't completely nuts. Maybe his tactics in defending himself had some way of creating a shadow of doubt, but otherwise he appears to be out of touch with reality in some very real ways.
It is too bad we didn't get to see a real trial, with accusations and evidence and witnesses and rebuttals that would show his guilt. I would have liked a black-and white case against him so we could know just how dep his delusional streak goes.
I suppose the Illinois politicians didn't want a parade of witnesses because many of those witnesses were guilty of trying to BUY the Governer's chair, just as Blagojevich was guilty of trying to sell it. There could have been a lot of shame to put on TV.
That makes two reasons why I would have liked to see a real trial.
Whereas it might be true that participants - the potential buyers of the Governership - are not actually guilty until they make the payments, but their careers would have been tarnished for sure.
And so this sorry saga ends, without much of a moral lesson that we didn't allready know. The only real story here is to see inside the head of another politician who is so utterly delusional that he cannot even see when it is time to duck under cover and retain some dignity. Blagojevich pushed it right to the end, even when people were laughing openly at him. Maybe Blago really believe his own story, which is that "his poop smells good" - nothing else could explain his actions in these past few days.
