Well, I’m going to dream with you. Certainly would be a slap in the face if he can no longer bamboozle the people of his ‘home’ state.
But, I’m not so sure that will ever happen in Chicago. Not when they can vote post-mortem, vote early/vote often, and vote without even going to the pols (someone votes for them).
I live near Mundelein, and I know that Illinois is a swing state, because of the 2010 election results. In that year, Illinois elected a new republican U.S. senator, treasurer, and comptroller, to replace retiring Democrats. The IL GOP gained four seats, in the U.S. House. Republicans gained seats in the state senate and state house. It will be very close, but Romney might win IL.
