    Try to beat up anymore teenagers lately there Rocko?

    As for November, establishment candidates will be replaced by more establishment candidates. The only difference is more will have a (R) next to their name instead of a (D).

    Besides the cheat shot, I think you made half a point. I think all incumbent have obstacles. I am personally voting for a few Ds (my House Rep has a pretty conservative record on taxes, spending and immigration and right in line with me on abortion, gay marriage and gun rights, my main issues and her opponent is a god's gift to her, he is a dumbass and Jesse White to name a few) and a few Republicans (Kirk - a Moderate, some call him a RINO) and the R Cook County Assessor (name evades me at the moment). I am still torn on IL Governor, I hate Quinn, Quinn is horrendous. Worse than Blago. But Brady is horrendous also. Not anywhere near as bad, but hit extreme stance on some social issues are very troubling to me. I am tempted to toss my vote away on the 3rd party Libertarian candidate, but then against I can't take a 4% income tax increase (2% Fed with the Bush Tax cut expiring and the 2% increase Quinn is running on).

    And this mindset is what's wrong with this country today. That voting for a third party is "tossing" your vote away.

    This just might be the first election where that might change. If enough people "toss their votes away" on 3rd parties. they might end up sticking.

    I wish it wasn't, but that is the fact. My voting for the Libertarian candidate would be a vote for Quinn!

    Let's face it, until a prominent Democrat or Republican jumps ship and follows a third party movement, we'll never see the two party system diminished. Here's to hoping Hillary has the moxy to attempt it.

    I think Republicans are going to pick up seats, but not as many as they think they are.
