A Draft Ditka Movement? Maybe

Word out of Chicago at the moment is that Governor Blagojevich is considering signing legislation that would strip him of the power to appoint a successor to Barack Obama in the Senate and instead the state would hold a special election.

So despite the fact that Illinois is a deep blue state, Bruce Walker at Enter Stage Right offers up a proposal for the GOP to trump ideology with popularity by drafting Mike Ditka to run for the seat. Remember, he almost did when Obama first ran for the the Senate. Hard to say if he would have won then or if can win now, but it makes about as much sense as anything thing else going on in the country at the moment. Why not?
