Blagojevich wants 10 debates with Judy Baar-Topinka? Why on earth would he want that? He’s ahead in the polls and is the incumbent. Neither of those things usually lends one to want to debate. Further, Blago has a ton of money and Topinka not so much. Debates give her free exposure. Ahhhh…maybe that’s it. Perhaps Campaign Blagojevich thinks Judy isn’t as ready for TV as Rod. Politics aside, I do have to admit Blagojevich comes across better on TV (unless it’s the Daily Show) than JBT. Perhaps the Rod Squad thinks they can put the campaign to bed after a poor showing by Judy in the debates.
Illinois politics –not making sense since 1818.
