Dick Durbin, D Senator from Illinois and US Rep Jan Schakowski (D-IL) have decided they know better what the voters want than the voters themselves. They stated that "people didn't really pay attention" and that the winner of the Dem. primary for Lt Governor, Cohen, should drop out even though he won by an even greater majority (30,000) than Quinn for governor.
Durbin issued the ominous statement "He's not going to be lieutenant governor". Is that because Durbin thinks there's more support for the Republican candidate Plummer or that the DNC is going to sabotage the campaign of a person who wasn't personally chosen to win the primary? From the way Durbin talks, it sounds like the latter to me.

Isn't it comforting to know what our 'leaders' think of the common citizen?
