| 1 Comment

CHICAGO---From what I've been told--from someone close to Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan--she is not interested in replacing President-elect Barack Obama in the U.S. Senate. Gov. Rod Blagojevich is considering Madigan and others (see prior posts) to fill Obama's seat.

THE JOB SHOULD GO TO CONGRESSMAN JACKSON, HE IS
YOUNG ENOUGH TO DO THE JOB, HE CAN RUN IN AN
ELECTION IN 2 YEARS AND GET RE-ELECTED!
WE DON'T NEED TO RE-INVENT THE WHEEL IN THIS
SITUATION, THE MAN SHOULD GET THE JOB!
THIS MAN ONE DAY COULD RUN FOR PRESIDENT AS WELL!
I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST DANNY DAVIS, EMIL JONES,
LISA MADIGAN, BUT LET'S BE REAL ABOUT THIS AND
BE FAIR ABOUT IT AS WELL, CONGRESSMAN JACKSON
HANDS DOWN FOR THE JOB!
CONGRATS TO THE FIRST VIETNAMESE-AMERICAN
CONGRESSMAN FROM LOUISIANA!
