1. Glad to see he's getting healthy, can't wait to put him out of a job in 2014



I blame Blogovich for the fact that there is a Republican in that seat now. He tried to play god with determining who would replace Obama and ended up creating a nightmare that turned off alot of Illinois voters. I suspect when re-election comes around that seat goes back to the democrats.
