August in Review: Blagojevich Trial Dominates Headlines

Normally this is a great time to tune out and hit the beach. But this year, August managed to throw us a curve ball or two. Dan Rostenkowski went to his grave believing he'd been misjudged for his transgressions. And that's a tune we're likely to hear Rod Balgojevich singing for quite some time. In signature style, the ex-governor has taken to the talk show circuit to gear up for his second federal corruption trial. But August 2010 wasn't all about the Blagojevichs. Our panel of journalists fill us in on the rest of the news that was.
