The mayor is commanding international attention. When he goes to prison, I predict he will soon be forgotten. That smirk will turn into a frown. Carlita will need to find employment perhaps as psychic hotline specialist. Bernard will be shining shoes at the airport, which is fitting with his connection to McNamara.

One call from Obama will clear up the matter, we can't have this stigma follow any black leader at this time so he will walk cleared of all charges I suspect ?

The question has been asked as to whether Obama would grant a pardon to Kwame as he leaves office. The consensus is that it would never happen as Obama will continue to distance himself from Kwame as he did in 2008. But he's the president. He can do anything. The constitution and normal laws do not apply to him.

If Kwame get off the charges cause there's one sane juror he will be treated like a king. If he goes to jail it will be like a Mandela thing when he gets out. So it's a win-win situation. You can't kill black pride.

President Barack Obama doesnt wanna parden the mayor til he gets that two term thing fixed. Then he pardens Kwame in his third term. Mr. Obama know he gets in trouble if he tries to microwave it now.
