    The 5th hasn't had a decent rep in Congress in my lifetime. I come in as a Quigley leaner, but Geoghegan sure has a good sales pitch. This could be one of those nice years in which I have the burden of choosing among several candidates I'd be happy with, rather than wishing there were even one in the crowd whom I could support unconditionally.

    But now here's the challenge for progressives: making sure that it's well understood that the real choice is among Geoghegan, Quigley and Feigenholtz . . . not between "a progressive" and "the guy Daley puts up" (*cough*Schulter*cough*) Because if it gets framed that way, the Daley guy will walk away with it.
