UGH! And the Black community is only left with Danny Davis and Carol Moseley Braun. They're more well known even though one was turned out of the US Senate over a decade ago. The other has a long tenure in the US House of Represenatives and is hitting 70. Not that hitting 70 is a bad thing.
Sure Meeks had his issues. One of which was the fact that he's a big time Christian Pastor and he's made statements that only served to hurt his campaign, but I could've easily voted him in faster (much faster) than I would Davis or our esteemed former US Senator.
It's really hard to get worked up about this mayoral race. Really hard and if nothing else this is even more Rahm Emanuel's to lose. UGH!!!!!!11!!!1!
