    Jeri Ryan, who played Seven of Nine on Star Trek Voyager, had been married to and divorced from one Jack Ryan, a rising Republican politician in Illinois.  In 2004, divorce papers she had filed became public, revealing allegations, which she did not then retract, of sexual proclivities that, shall we say, did not play in Peoria.  Mr. Ryan dropped out of the race, leaving the field clear for a Democratic candidate who then had time to write a pretty good keynote speech for that year's Democratic National Convention.
