Draft Fitzgerald

In his column in today's Chicago Tribune, Dennis Byrne suggests that the best thing that could happen to Illinois politics would be to draft Sen. Peter Fitzgerald and re-elect him to the office that he currently holds. Since Fitzgerald is the only Illinois politician that I actually like -- he may sometimes be perceived as a crank, but even when I don't agree with him, I find he's my kind of crank -- this sounds like a pretty fine idea to me.
