And why not? Considering the folks Illinois voters elect year after year, why not Scott Lee Cohen. What's interesting is that Cohen reached the decision to get into the governor's race after sampling public opinion:
Just weeks later, rumors began to circulate that Cohen was conducting polling to determine what voters thought of him. Officials at Grainger Terry, a consulting firm that helped run Cohen's lieutenant governor campaign, confirmed Friday that Cohen paid them $30,000 to do the polling in March.
What in the world could those sampled in the poll have said that gave this jamoke the encouragement he needed to run? Can we import some new voters from Wisconsin?
