Will Stroger abdicate "the throne"
I always wonder, does Russ Stewart really have the goods, or is he just incredibly good at interpolating the Illinois/Chicago political scene? Whatever the situation, he's got some fascinating analysis of the 2006 Illinois elections, centered on the impending decision of Cook County Board President Port-a-John Stroger on whether or not to run for re-election. Stroger is such a contemptible waste of space, I can't help but indulge in this kind of wishful thinking. So the question is, come 2007, who would you like to see take the helm of Cook County's mighty fleet???
