Well Illinois, while now seemingly a “safe” Democratic state has a long
history of electing Republicans – not clear to me by a longshot that Durbin’s
seat if a safe one in 2008. (I’m an independant in Chicago)
that Illinois while currently having a mostly incompetant Republican party, a
Democratic governer, two democratic senators, and a major democratic mayor
(Daley) we also have the current speaker of the house (Republican Denny Hastart)
and his seat is a fairly safe one.
Something I am slightly surprised at –
has noone suggested the John Kerry be the next minority whip? I suspect in terms
of senority he is low on the totem pole, but I am also fairly certain that
Massachusetts will keep on electing Democrats for the foreseeable future.
