    I heard on the radio that one of the GOP was concerned about his temper. Wonder who they'll find? No one wants to take on Obama. Ryan, second thoughts or not, hasn't any chance. The party won't help him at all.

    Ryan actually would've been a formidable candidate, but then it seems recently the last name "Ryan" in Illinois hasn't exactly heard in a positive sense.

    If he had given some notice to those working for him, including in the GOP what type of problems were coming, perhaps. He didn't. I was in Wheaton at the Rally when he announced that the following Monday or Tuesday he divorce records would be unsealed. He assured everyone there, that the only problems were regarding minor tussels, normal in a divorce. He could have let this bombshell out during the primary to see how it would go, but no. He sealed his own fate.
