8:00 PM (all times eastern): since the face of the LKL Blog David Theall is in New York today, I'll be doing tonight's live blog. I'm Michael Watts, an LKL supervising producer based in DC. I've been reading your comments througout the day. A lot of smart stuff in there. It's been especially interesting to me how many Illionois residents have already chimed in. Please continue adding your comments to this post, or the post below, and keep checking in through the end of the show for updates.
8:55 We're looking for some good questions from you for the governor tonight. Please put them in and we'll get to as many as we can.
9:07 So the governor is saying one of the reasons he's not participating in the impeachment trial is because he can't call witnesses. Do you think this is fair?
9:12 When asked about the quotes from the recorded conversations cited by U.S. Attorney Fitzpatrick , the governor didn't respond to the specific quotes. He did say though he is anxious to hear the tapes and hopes they'll be played during the hearings this week. Don't know about you, but I can't wait to hear those tapes.
9:26 Very interesting. Governor said he expects to be removed from office in the next few days.
9:35 Not sure what made me think of this, but I wonder if Sen. Burris is watching tonight?
9:45 I'm enjoying reading your comments, not something I usually get to do. How do you all feel the governor is doing? Do you find him convincing?
9:47 Just used one of your questions on air. Looking for more so keep 'em coming.
9:54 Many of you have asked about the Children's Hospital and Wrigley Field allegations. Larry planning to ask about that in the next segment if we have time.
10:00 Very interesting show and it's been really fun reading your comments. Keep the conversation going and we'll be looking at your comments throughout the night. Thanks for watching and thanks for blogging with us.
