    Im sorry Bro, I jus think that comparision is not even close. Despite his flaws, Pat Quinn is not even close to Tom Corbett. Quinn is in a better position to win re-election because Illinois is much bluer than PA, and the IL GOP are incompetents, and who ever they nominate will emerge from a bloody primary, which will be enough for Quinn to get the V.

    •  I think you misunderstood my note (5+ / 0-)

      Because I agree with you.

      Demorats got everything they wanted from Quinn and he's unpopular.

      BeloitDem's original post about primarying Corbett was the line

      Is what would a Republican run against Corbett on? "He gave use everything we wanted and it turned out to be really, really unpopular?"
      My statement then said that Illinois might have the Dem infrastructure to carry Quinn even though he's unpopular, just as you did.

        Going back to Quinn, once he wins again I doubt he'll run for a 3rd term. By that time he would have done all the heavy lifting, just in time for Madigan to run and say "Hey Pat, thanks for doing all the heavy lifting for me" lol.

        But I just think you can't compare their unpopularites which   are different. Quinn is just too honest and is doing the heavy lifting to get IL on the right path. Corbett is just a disgusting human being. Matter of fact, I don't think he should be considered a human being, cause the dude is just a grade A scum.

          But the broadstrokes are certainly applicable.

          I think if Quinn can pull off 2014 (and I do), he and only he gets to decide on a third term.  He'll certainly have earned it.
