Two of my favorite strands in one item: a knock on Rod Blagojevich coupled with speculation about 2010. Eric Zorn of the Chicago Tribune advises Illinois ...
Eric Zorn of the Chicago Tribune advises Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan to announce her candidacy for governor now, two years out, to scare out other potential candidates and to weaken the gov's fundraising.
Zorn is not above groveling:
I know, I know. When you ran for attorney general in 2002, I argued your only real credential was the ominous fact that your father is the powerful speaker of the Illinois House, Mike Madigan, and that it was obscene that so much of your support was based on family connections rather than your own accomplishments.
I've eaten those words. You've been an energetic, independent, resourceful and sometimes brave attorney general who's followed through on her campaign promises. I haven't agreed with every position you've taken, but I've never doubted your integrity.
