Place Your Bets! The Blagojevich Verdict Pool Is Open!

This wheel is rigged - it always comes up Double Zero.
Thus, with the jury probably being read their instructions as we speak, any number of possibilities lie before us. We could have the verdict almost immediately. They could argue for weeks. They could vote to convict on everything, they could make no decision at all. So in between now and then, in the spirit of the original Blagojevich "Political Death" Pool, we're opening the floor to your legal prognostication.
Personally, I'm appealing to the Gods of the Media Cycle and laying my marker on a verdict handed in Thursday night, an evening of analysis and intrigue, and a reading at 10 a.m. on Friday. Double or nothing on the Blagojevich Brothers running the table - guilty on all counts.
