Couldn't happen to a nicer guy:
Illinois has been cursed with crud like him.
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...)
I credit George Ryan with the problem the Illinois GOP is now facing. I'm pretty sure that the only person that can fix it is Jim Edgar.
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:
