A Democratic insurgency

In today's Chicago Tribune there was this column about Ed Eisendrath's campaign for governor. He announced last month his campaign for the Democratic nomination for governor. Eisendrath was disappointed in Governor Blagojevich's ethical failings as governor and is going to go after him based on Blagojevich's pledge to end business as usual. Needless to say there are a lot of people out there who will say that Blagojevich hasn't lived up to it.

So the column ends on this note...
This could be good for the governor. No doubt he would prefer not to have a primary campaign. But this may force him to acknowledge the problems that have caused his public standing to crater and to put on a public defense of his tenure. If nothing else, he will learn if rank-and-file Democrats have given up on him.

My post on Eisendrath
Blagojevich has an opponent...
