This is Rahm Emanuel's old seat. And before him Blagojevich and Rostenkowski. In the last 107 years it has had a Republican congressman for 4 of them. What do you think?
I think we need to contest every single seat. And in cases like this, we need candidates who will say inflammatory (but correct) things to shake things up. She needs to tag her opponent as a member of the party that supports abortion, homosexual marriage, illegal immigration, socialized medicine, and out of control taxing and spending. See how that plays. If she harps on those issues, she'll get a sizable part of the minority vote. To date, the GOP has been too scared to go there.

(It's a sad time when Pravda's reporting is more reliable than anything in the major US media.)
Exactly so. We need true diehard conservatives to run against liberals in every single state for every single position and we would win most of the time!

Apparently we are. But I'm not expecting to see an upset. That's not being defeatist, just realistic.
