    Oswego Willy … just to shut him up.


  5. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Sep 12, 17 @ 2:14 pm:

    Thursday… Is Kennedy having this person shipped via Amazon?

    To the Question,

    Maybe someone who ran Bill Daley’s ill-fated campaign. Lots of former staffers are becoming LG candidates these days.

    Hard to say since Chris looks like he was always last pick in sandlot ball.

    Is Diana Rauner still a Dem? It would be good for her brand.


  21. - Gooner - Tuesday, Sep 12, 17 @ 2:26 pm:

    There really are only two people who live/work in Illinois who can put Kennedy into contention, but Kennedy doesn’t have the political courage to pick either. Those two would be Phelps or Vandermyde.

    A strong pro-gun running mate would be the one move that could actually expand the IL Democratic Party, and both (particularly Todd) are friends of labor.

    Kennedy instead will choose a Sanders supporter that nobody cares about and who will fail to generate any interest, and he will finish a distant third in the primary if he makes the ballot at all.

    Unspecified time and location, because his campaign can’t get him to show up on time at the right place.

    I’m with Gooner 2:26 PM - he’ll pick a Sanders supporter. Maybe a mayor rather than a legislator so he can continue to make the case that he’s an outsider that wants big change.

    I thought it might be somebody who has endorsed Kennedy. His website lists nobody. The only high profile endorsement I found is Bobby Rush.

    It is not going to be Rush, so the good news is that he will have a second person endorse him.

    What’s Willie Wilson up to these days?

    He had a respectable third-place finish in his run for mayor.

    And he has a net worth of about $70 million.

    Kennedy needs a running mate who brings a lot of cash to the equation, and that almost certainly means someone from the business community that is a traditional Democrat. Cross off all of the white males from Chicago metro area and you have a pretty good list to work from.

    Willie Wilson would be near top of that list.

    Gooner’s suggestion of Phelps or Vandermyde may not help much in the primary, but… It almost certainly would give the democrats more votes downstate in the general. Certainly mitigate a lot of concerns downstaters have about most of the democrat candidates. Maybe even enough to tip the democrats over the top. Very interesting suggestion…

    There are a lot of us traditional Republicans who are very dissatisfied with Rauner and are seeking an acceptable alternative. Ideally, a different Republican or a moderate, pro-2nd amendment democrat.
