Since we're all having fun speculating potential successors for Hillary Clinton in the Senate should she win the Presidency, let's take a moment to look at Illinois, too.
Assuming Barack Obama crushes Tom Tancredo in the 2008 Presidential election, whom might Gov. Rod Blagojevich appoint to serve the final two years of Obama's Senate term? Whom would you like Blago to appoint?
The most common name that I've heard batted around for a hypothetical Senate promotion is Attorney General Lisa Madigan. Other possibilities could include Comptroller Dan Hynes, who finished second to Obama in the 2004 Senate primary, or perhaps a Representative like Jesse Jackson, Jr.
Any other possibilities? Tammy Duckworth? Lt. Gov. Pat Quinn? Blago himself? (Shudder to think.) Leave your thoughts in the comments.
