No "There" To Rezko Accusations

I'm not surprised.

The couple who sold Barack Obama his Chicago home said the Illinois senator's $1.65 million bid ``was the best offer'' and they didn't cut their asking price because a campaign donor bought their adjacent land, according to e- mails between Obama's presidential campaign and the seller.

The Illinois senator has said he made a ``boneheaded'' move in involving contributor Antoin ``Tony'' Rezko, a Chicago businessman, in the purchase of the property on June 15, 2005.

I would think the Clinton campaign and any liberals who weren't comatose during the 1990s would know better than to echo right-wing attacks on nothingburger real estate deals.
