    Anybody facing jail time has a right to call ANYONE that they think may have answers that may free them, despite the politics of who the potential witnesses may be. Is this a case where people who oppose the delicate nature of calling Obama as a possible witness would rather see the former Illinois Governor go to jail, even if Obama may be able to say the slightest thing that could possible free him?
