  •  Not a great argument. (none)
    There were people here making the "Obama-Osama" argument during the Illinois Senate primary, too.

    Look how that ended up.

    I have no idea whether Duckworth would be a good candidate.  But I'm skeptical of Emmanuel's continued inistence on military candidates for the sake of having military candidates.

    Very DLC of him...

    •  I wish she'd run in a district (none)
      where that makes a difference.  Mark Kirk's, perhaps?
      •  Too late (none)
        The Dem candidates in IL-13 & IL-10 would step aside for her so she could have at it.  Unfortunately, "Rong" Emanuel hates Chistine so much that he's willing to totally mishandle TWO completely winnable seats:  IL-06 & either of the others I previously mentioned.

        Emanuel's proving how much we need Christine in Congress.  As an IT project manager, she knows how to manage a budget.  Emanuel clearly doesn't.   She intimidates him.  He gives the rest of us a bad name.

        She's also a progressive Dem that speaks out against the war.  She's for peace similar to Kucinich.  Emanuel will do everything possible to keep her out of Congress.

        On 03/21/2006, the voters will remind him that THEY decide who represents them.  They will also send a message -- with a dunce cap to wear.
