State School News ($) has a commentary on the Topinka-Blagojevich faceoff asserting that it assures a meaningful election with lots of school funding implications -- but few specifics.
"For those who may hope Topinka will say in advance of November's general
elections how she'd solve the perennial school funding crisis, a word of
caution: Don't expect many specifics. Politicians have long memories. In Illinois, they never forget the primary
elections of 1972." [when Paul Simon apparently lost to Dan Walker because he mentioned changing the state income tax]
