CLEVELAND -- A jury confirms what the public had already decided -- that Jimmy Dimora is guilty of massive corruption .

Will the government pursue a second trial? What about all the public officials and lawyers named but not charged? Will the investigation go on?

Dennis Kucinich is going to have to reinvent himself again. He was soundly defeated by Marcy Kaptur.

Was he a sore loser for not calling Kaptur to congratulate her?

Will he run for Congress in Washington state? Does he have a political future in Greater Cleveland?

Tim McGinty is almost a slam-dunk certainty to be Cuyahoga County's next prosecutor.

What is his challenge until he takes office?

Can he connect with those in the minority community concerned about him? Will a charter review commission consider making prosecutor an appointed office?

Mayor Frank Jackson's State of the City speech painted a very positive picture of Cleveland's future.

But once again, he said the city's success will rise or fall on its ability to create a successful school system that really educates students and prepares them for future jobs.

How is his tranformation plan progressing? Can he get buy-in from all the needed groups?

Tom Beres discusses these issues with Plain Dealer Columnists Mark Naymik and Joe Frolik on this edition of Between the Lines.
