Point noted but 50+ years of living in IL tell me that it will take a miracle for IL to go for anyone other than Obama.

As for downstate being red. Sure it is for the most part. But then there are counties like Macoupin where I grew up that might as well be Cook County. All, and I mean ALL, of the farmers vote Democrat. The businesses they frequent and support vote the same way or lose the business of the farmers.

My parents had a friend who ran for county office. She was a registered Republican, worked for a Republican legislator from another district, and in order to even have a chance in her own county ran for office as a Democrat - with the adivce and blessing of her boss.

Well, in spite of the odds, this election year I prefer to believe in miracles. What the heck, impossible as it may seem, we might wake up the next day in shock and awe. The glass half full.... A girl can dream.
