(THE LETTER: Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have promised to bring us together.

If they can't conduct their campaigns without driving the Democrats apart, how do they imagine that they will bring us together as a nation?)

DAN PROFT
-- Engendering a Republican Renaissance in Illinois
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=5918482949442718112&pr=goog-sl (Video clip)
(THE ARTICLE: I have had the good fortune to speak at many county GOP Lincoln Day dinners and before a number of Republican organizations around the state over the past several months. The speech I have linked to here was last week before a great group of concerned Republicans in Yorkville (Kendall County) as represented by the Kendall County Women's Republican Club. My talk breaks down into four component parts and is, in part, my contribution to the important discussions and debates Republicans across the state are having as to how to make our party relevant and competitive again in Illinois. The four parts: (1) Where are we? What is the landscape?; (2) How did we get here?; (3) Where do we want to go? What kind of party do we want to be?; and (4) How do we get to where we want to go? I want to again thank the Kendall County Republican Women for their indulgence as well as offer my thanks to the many other GOP county chairmen, township GOP organizations, and rank-and-file Republicans throughout Illinois who have welcomed my thoughts and observations (and who, of course, have expressed their undying devotion to WLS-AM 890 and the "Don Wade & Roma Show"). I would welcome your feedback and your ideas as to the policies and practices the Illinois GOP must embody in order to be successful again.)
