    If this is the reason this is typical Lahood. Do not doubt the mans honesty and integrity but have questions as to his intellectual
    ability.Have seen too many times when someone else had to
    step in and rescue him for his misstatements.
    Think there are many republicans who would have been more
    qualified for this position.

    Jim Hall, you know nothing about this man. Lahood has served downstate Iliniois for many years honorably. He is not mixed up with that Chicago crowd that you and other Libs are so fond of.
