Rumor has it from some very well-placed sources in the 14th district in Illinois that House Speaker Dennis Hastert plans to resign from the United States Congress soon. If he does so within the next 9 months, a special primary will be held, and the Democrats will have another chance to take the district.
John Laesch has already been told that he will not be the man.
And the Associated Press reports that Democrats now have complete control of the United States Congress. Webb has won in Virginia.
The sun also rises.
