For those of you who do not read the Daily Kos blog, you should. While it's an understatement to say it leans to the political left (don't be afraid conservatives), it is a very thought provoking site.
Anyway, I bring this up because Kos has this to say on the race for Governor in Illinois:
Illinois (D-Rod Blagojevich)-- Blago's administration is corrupt, he's got a terrible relationship with the Democratic legislature, and people don't like him. There is one semi-popular Republican in the state, Judy Baar Topinka, yet she'll have a hard time overcoming her state's heavy Blue leanings. Voters seem willing to keep her as state treasurer. As governor? Skepticism abounds.
Kos also has Blago listed as an "endangered incumbent":
In just about any other state, Blago is toast. But Illinois has no quality Republicans left, and its heavy Blue tilt gives him a boost that quite frankly, given his administration's corruption, is undeserved.
