What sentence should Bernie Ebbers get under Booker?

This morning I pondered in this post what sentence former Connecticut Governor Rowland might get under Booker, and now this afternoon we have another high-profile sentencing to contemplate.  As detailed in this AP story, former WolrdCom chief Bernard Ebbers was convicted today on numerous fraud counts.   Peter Henning over at the White Collar Crime Blog has this post thughtfully detailing that Blakely and Booker issues are likely to impact not only Ebbers' sentencing, but also his expected appeal.
