I just finished reading Bobby Rush's PRESS RELEASE wherein he states that he has no intentions of giving up his seat. But in a 'shades of HAROLD WASHINGTON' moment, my mind immediately went to who will replace our aging elected officials?Instead of designating the RIGHT-HAND man or woman like Hastert tried with Oberweis, how about just having normal elections, when they're supposed to happen, and not the anointing we're prone to in Illinois?
Does Bobby have a 'RIGHT-HAND man or woman' who could step in and fill his seat? What about Danny Davis?
What other aging politician needs to be letting their constituents know who should take over for a "just in case" moment?
