    I live in a southeast suburb of Chicago. You seem okay, although I'm still leaning towards Alexi G. at this point. I don't like war, but I want to give President Obama and the military a chance to clean up that enormous mess over there. I need to know where you stand on clean energy legislation (my number one issue), education reform, healthcare reform, and financial regulation including strong consumer protections. Is there going to be a debate before the primary? I really need to see all the candidates in a debate before making my final decision. I'm slightly more supportive of Alexi G. and Cheryle Jackson than I am of you right now because I know a little more about them.

      I had decided to support Giannoulias.  However, after I read here that he was supporting the war escalation in Afghanistan, I changed my mind.  I will most likely support Hoffman.  I think he is probably more electable than Giannoulias anyway, and he is certainly progressive.  Giannoulias made a huge mistake to endorse the war escalation.  I have not heard anything to convince me that Alexi is better than Hoffman in any way.
