  •  He's not selfish. (7+ / 0-)

    He's grandiose.  He believes himself to be a gift to Illinois politics.  That's why he keeps running for stuff that he's not going to get elected to.

    That said, he has 40 years of public service and 12 years in state-wide office, including 8 years as Attorney General.  He is a fighter for universal health care.  He is a fighter for the elderly.  He is a fighter for the impoverished.

    And, as you can tell by him walking up to the Senate despite being told there will be armed guards to meet him, he is a fighter in general.

    Forgive me, but after the past 8 years of Democratic caving, someone with some fight in him doesn't really sound all that bad to me.  God or no God.

    The Republican Party: the party of greed, hate, anger, fear, waste, death and destruction!
