    Yahoo! News Explains how Ryan used Illinois death row to try and 'reform' himself, (unintentionally I'm sure, but not lost on the voters-see how Blue Illinois has become...)

    Jim Edgar is out, his wife made sure of that. Too bad about his heart, but I don't blame her.

    Unfortunately, you are correct. I just hope Judy Baar Topinka is up to the challenge of sending Govenor Blagojevich back to Dick Mell's house.

    I don't know anyone other the lockstep GOP folk that are going for Judy. Since she undermined Oberweiss and brought in Keyes last go round, her stock plummeted with those I know.

    It plummeted with me too. My absentee ballot went to Ryan. However, Topinka is the GOP candidate and is, I can't believe I'm saying this, the hope of the Illinois GOP.

    If there isn't an alternative, I'll vote for her because Rod is just bad news. I doubt that she could be worse, but heh, it's Illinois. :coffee3:
