Response to ChairmanAgnostic (Reply #3)

4. Both Bobby and Danny are pretty much Congressmen for Life

And so would Jesse, Jr. have been, until he screwed up. In this kind of situation, people are used to not bothering to vote for their Congressperson, because it's a foregone conclusion. I'm sure that attitude, or rather habit, is coming into play in this special election, even though it's critical.

I can tell you, if there were a special election to replace Davis (say he retires), I'd be out there in a New York (oops, Chicago) second.
