With Friends Like These (Chicago Tribune Ed.)

ChicagoTribune_logo.gif The spoiled brats over at the Chicago Tribune Editorial Board have some warm words of advice for Lisa Madigan should she decide to run for governor:

It will be in the best interest of the people of Illinois — and in the best interest of Lisa Madigan — that her father, Michael Madigan, step down as speaker of the Illinois House.

Lisa Madigan's independence and credibility as a candidate — and more important, as governor — will depend on her father.

"Independence and credibility" -- that's the ticket! Of course, this is the same bunch who endorsed right-winger Bill Brady for governor last time round. It's not likely they're going to support Lisa Madigan one way or another.
