    I hate to lose the seat after we lost IL-10, but Bean needs to go. She's an embarrassment to the party. We'll pick it up again next cycle. Maybe 10 with it.

      stead.  Walsh will make her look like the most prized rep of all time.  He and his crew are despicable.  Tonight on the news they were making accusations that her absentee ballots were coming from a mental hospital.  These people and their death threats to the League of Women Voters moderator are the bottom of the barrel.

      I wouldn't call her an embarrasment.  On social issues and most others, she was a pretty loyal Dem representing a district that is still on the reddish side of purple.  True, she was a corporatist, but I expected nothing less considering her background.  This was a race she should have won easily and it shows one of the lessons that need to be learned.  Don't take anything for granted.

      Also, the one bright spot in the returns yet to be counted.  In the absentee ballot portion of the Cook County votes, she won by a larger portion than in the election day voting,so even though it is still a long shot, it is a possibility she can pull it out.
