The National Review Cedes Illinois

The always moronic John J. Miller over at the National Review can't muster too much confidence in Ryan.

"ILLINOIS: Democratic state Sen. Barack Obama will face Republican investor-turned-teacher Jack Ryan. Democrats will try to make Obama a national cause celebre because he is black; in Ryan, Republicans are pleased to have a nominee that they tried and failed to recruit two years ago. Ryan is an underdog, but if 2004 turns out to be a stronger-than-expected year for Republicans everywhere, he has a chance to eke out a win. LEANING DEMOCRATIC TAKEOVER."

I love the fact that Miller can't acknowledge any other positive qualities in Obama beyond his race. White suburbanites and downstaters in Illinois sure did when they voted last month.
