    Spitzer is so brilliant – too bad he screwed up his career.

    I have listened to a lot of the defense options that the Strauss-Kahn legal team might use. How about the Viagra defense. Mayb he was using the one a day Viagra and just couldn't help himself.

    It he commited the crime, well the judgment should be the same as for anyone else . Doesn't matter who he is or what he does for a living or how much money he has. The girl should not be discriminated by the defense atty just because of race. I hope he is found guilty & that the courts r fair & do the right thing.

    Anderson, I have enjoyed your reporting throughout the world, on every major story or crisis you have covered. I believe you are the top newsman / reporter of the day, and of the top 10 of all time.

    Dominique Strauss-Kahn, (DSK), will never enter a NYC courtroom again. There 2 actions I recommend:

    1. Escort him to fly out of JFK and be done with this travesty of justice to save the people of NY a ton of money.

    2. Revoke bail on the first hint of impropriety.

    Anderson, if anyone on earth, besides the likes of Hitler, Saddam Hussein, Kaddafi, OBL, Assad, all Saudi Royals feels they are above the law and untouchable, DSK is that person. When, you interview his defense team or DSK himself, ask them if they would trade 10% – 50% of their wealth to be free and clear of this trial, and live in France in a villa next to Roman Polanski. I am going to predict that the first visitors will be devising a plan and putting funds in place to escape. There are hundreds of private jets at Teterboro airport as well as White Plains to fly him where ever he wants, including France. NYC and the nation will be very embarrassed over his escape. The security firm will be paid off and also be prosecuted.

    The other scenario is acquittal of all charges. This will come about through illegal coercion, falsifying evidence, having evidence thrown out, and every other dirty and immoral means as Johnny Cockran did for OJ Simpson. They will attack each witness for the prosecution, finding small improprieties from their past, from speeding, DUI arrests or parking tickets, to work place problems to get their testimony thrown out.

    To wrap up, either incarcerate him until the end of the trial, or escort him to JFK.

    I find this story interesting. Was this IMF chairman involved in the organization of Asian countries and France to create their own currency reserve to buy commodities and ignore the American dollar reserve that is currently the monetary standard ? Could he be involved in helping foreign countries expedite the fall of the American dollar? If that is true, why would he come to the United States and commit such an egregious crime? I am a victim rights advocate but something just does not sit right with me on this one.
