Why continue the search?

Tammy Duckworth has turned down Gov. Pat Quinn's offer to be his running mate

He's available

in the November election, sending him and the rest of the Democratic Party Leadership scrambling to find a second choice.

Again, the voters have nothing to say about it. They already have made their second choice for slating as the Democratic lieutenant governor candidate--Art Turner--but the bosses will have none of that. 
Who would want the job now? I hear that Roland Burris will be looking for a job after the next election.
