Yet the Post, in an editorial today, is calling for a special election to decide who will represent Illinois in the US Senate, not our crazed governor, Rod Blagojevich.
The best solution remains the one that we urged at the outset of this mess: a special election. Unfortunately, the Democrat-dominated Illinois General Assembly dropped this approach because of concerns that Mr. Obama's seat might end up in Republican hands. The General Assembly should reconsider. Its responsibility is making certain that the citizens of Illinois have their full complement of senators -- not making certain that both are Democrats.
We want a special election!
