Re: “Post-Stroger Politics

I rather resent the comparison of Richard Ogilvie to Todd Stroger. Ogilvie was about as clean as any Illinois polititican could be and got beaten by a rabid demagogue Dan Walker who denounced the tax increase but made no move to reverse it when he took office. I still enjoy a comment Mike Royko made about Walker after he was defeated four years later, "He was a modern media candidate - a well-packaged politiical product...the product has been taken off the shelves. Turned out to be shoddy."
