Prison or the presidency? Brazil's Lula defies corruption charges

Lula's lost a battle but insists he'll win the war. Brazil's charismatic former president is vowing to fight on after appellate judges upheld his bribery conviction. Polls show that even with other legal cases pending, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva remains the clear frontrunner in the Workers Party's bid to regain the presidency in October. Will he be allowed to stand? Is he the best Brazil can come up with in these times of recession and scandal?
