It's Over!!! Foster won (IL-14)

A district that was 54% for Bush in 2004, once represented by Bush Buttboy Dennis Hastert has sent a Democrat to Congress!

You see Hillary, when you fight root and branch for every state, every district and every neighborhood, block by block and concede nothing to Republicans, you come out ahead in the end. And even if you lose, you make the Republicans sweat for it and spend money.

Obama cut an ad for Foster, so I'm sure he will return the favor with his vote as a superdelegate.

14. That makes two Democratic "rocket scientists"

10. QUIT giving credit for this win to Obama.
Foster was an excellent candidate, Obama had very very little to do with his win. Quit it.
