Rod Blagojevich could remain the governor through the end of this year, though yesterday’s Rezko case news makes that slightly less likely. In any case, Ramsin Canon, Eric Zorn and Larry Handlin have started to wonder who Governor Blagojevich, or Lieutenant Governor Pat Quinn, might appoint to replace a President-elect Obama. My neighbors Carol Ronen and Alexi Giannoulias receive several mentions; Attorney General Lisa Madigan may be the best candidate, but her eyes are on the governorship. If Obama gets a say, and is serious about immigration reform, will Luis Gutierrez have a chance to pass the DREAM Act in the Senate? I like Pat Quinn to select himself, should he get the chance.
