Here's another column about Jesse Jackson Jr. by Chicago Sun-Times columnist Tom Roeser who's on the other side of the aisle for sure in politics. However I guess everyone is salivating at the idea of defeating Mayor Daley. But then the recent scandals that have occured under his administration certainly have caused a lot of speculation.
To be honest I'd probably vote for Jesse Jr. faster than I'd vote for anyone else. The last election was full of no name political novices who either talked crazy or they didn't know what they were doing except file enough signatures (in Chicago you need 25,000 to get on the ballot for mayor). But Jesse Jackson Jr. is at least a known quality in Chicago and to be honest I don't care much about his politics, however, there is a time where you need a different type of leadership in Chicago.
