It's a good thing he's not still in office. You almost feel sorry for the guy.

It's pretty clear he's vulnerable. He's got his work cut out for him.

The issues that are important to voters (in Illinois) are Democratic issues. If the Republicans want to win back the Governor's Mansion, they really have to put up a Jim Edgar-type candidate, a moderate.

I'm not saying he's going to get a pass. If the state economy is in the hole his entire term, that's going to be an albatross. Any kind of honeymoon he had is gone. It's the same old typical politician, I think, that's how a lot of that anger is going to be seen.

This year could be like 1974, when Democrats picked up 44 seats.

Missouri voters really aren't sure what's going on with the president.

His proposals just aren't that popular.

The administration's agenda just doesn't resonate in Illinois.

There's no question Blagojevich is vulnerable.
