Capitol Fax: “Our” divided Illinois

Rich Miller shares with us his column with regards to the various regional differences within the state whether we talk about currently or back during the 19th Century before Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves. It's very interesting how we see how at times the divides had been bridged in the past and how it's difficult to get policy goals achieved now. Partisanship isn't even an issue as both major parties (GOP and Democrats) have different factions located within the different regions of this state that even if the Democrats have a supermajority in the state legislature it's only a supermajority "in party name only". I suppose whatever your partisan preference whatever part of the state you're from you can find a home there somewhere.
