Groovy, but what is the likelihood of ANY Republican winning the general?

We can win that seat. We will send in thousands of people to register voters, take people to the polls, and even vote themselves. We will set up a network of activists to intimidate voters who might vote for the opposing party.

Oh, I'm sorry, we don't have an ACORN on our side... I guess the Dems win again...

The way Rahm and Obama are fiddle-f***** our nation’s wealth and security away, she may have a chance.

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?

Many of the district’s voters think that their last two congressmen, Rahm Emanuel and Rod Blagojevich, were corrupt and liberal. To show that they support a big change, more voters will choose the only conservative, in the race, Rosanna. Obama said that we should vote for change.

Miniscule even with a viable candidate. However, given Ms. Pulido's "Minuteman" connection, the Chicago media are going to go into overdrive to paint her as a whackadoodle -- and they'll probably succeed.

This is the old Rostenkowski district — Democrat to the core. Joseph Stalin, IV, if he exists, would be a good fit for the district.

Probably slim and none but strange things happen in elections sometimes. There were 54856 votes cast in the Democrat Primary; 3977 votes in the Republican which she got 1001; 491 votes in the Green. Thus it is a long way for her to leap based upon the primary turnout.

I’m told that a Michael Patrick Flanagan won one term right after Rostonkowski lost. Cao won in LA in a strong democrat district, Lampson won one term in the old Delay district in Texas so upsets do occur.
