    I think Durbin stays in 2014, but throws in the towel in 2020.

    If Durbin retires in 2014, my 1st choice replacement would be Dan Hynes. 2nd would be Sheila Simon.

    I really want Jan Schakowsky to succeed Durbin; however, she would be pegged as "too liberal" and "too Chicago-friendly" to Downstate/non-Chicagoland Illinois voters and the ILGOP.

    Lisa Madigan would be great, but I think she's more interested in the IL-Gov race in 2014.

    •  Schakowsky is 68 (0+ / 0-)

      she will be retiring herself soon - and you want a younger person who can serve several terms anyway.

      •  Damn. Didn't realize she was that old. (0+ / 0-)

        Ds see human suffering and wonder what they can do to relieve it. Rs see human suffering and wonder how they can profit from it.
