    I read Axelrod's comments differently. I think he was being a Chicago Democrat. Perhaps a bit dickish, but trying to give Raja good advice. Many of the establishment prefer Duckworth and he could be heading to a second primary defeat.

    •  Axelrod didn't have to endorse (1+ / 0-)

      Neither did Gov. Abercrombie, or Sen. Durbin (who emailed me earlier asking me to empty my pockets for Duckworth). These are people who are personally close to President Obama and have been for years. They doubtless ran in the same circle as Krishnamoorthi, who was also friends with Obama. I think it's obvious that there was a major falling-out and the Obama camp, including guys like Abercrombie and Durbin who are elected officials in their own right, has some sort of vendetta.

      •  Maybe they just like Duckworth better (0+ / 0-)
