Illinois, new Massachusetts setback for Obama?

Now this will really hurt Obama it it were to become true. Losing his previous Senator seat to the Republicans. In addition, it would appear that the Governor seat in Illinois is also up for grabs by the Republicans.
Quote:
"Massachusetts was more of a referendum on Obama. In Illinois, it's going to be a referendum on Democratic incompetence," said Pat Brady, chairman of the Illinois Republican Party.

Quote:
Republicans use Blagojevich, who left behind the biggest budget deficit in Illinois history, as a symbol of Democratic mismanagement. Whether talking about candidates for governor or Senate, they argue that any Democrat who supported Blagojevich or his policies or simply criticized him too mildly should not hold office.

Republicans have reason to be optimistic. Officials from both parties say Illinois voters are frustrated by rising unemployment and are angry about gridlock in Washington and corruption in state government. Since Democrats control all major offices in Illinois, that anger seems likely to be directed at them.

Looks like a great opportunity for the Republicans, but who knows what can happen from now to November. In politics that is a very very long time! This is going to be a tremendously interesting year for US politics.
