What? Ditka for governor? He won only one super Bowl with a team that was capable of winning three in a row!

Ditka is the town drunk, a lout, a loudmouth and a drunken bufoon. He alienates his best friends and his family. This guy would be three steps backwards from Blago.

Get a grip, he is a joke, he is likely to go to his just reward in a drunken driving accident like so many other lifelong drunks.

let's review Mr Ditka's resume:
(1) he was a satisfactory player for his era, but satisfactory is all he was;
(2) he happened to be hired to coach a team that would have progressed to the Super Bowl regardless of who was coach;
(3) his coaching & leadership skills are defined by his tenure in New Orleans;
(4) his temper tantrums are legendary; do we want a governor that exhibits that behavior?
an uninformed electorate proferring solutions of this type are why Illinois is a laughing stock nationally and internationally.
We have a new president with less.

Mike **** is a jerk and would just make us all the more for jokes, he knows nothing about goverment and cares only about lining his pockets ( might as well bring the felon ryan back ) all he wants is to come to his over priced crap restaurant with his name on anything that will pay him a penny we do not need another jerk as Gov.....we need some one to address to serious problems we have and he IS not the man to do it. All that will happen is another Gov. going to jail cause his greed will get the best of him or his pig head not bending having a tantrum won't help either....
Who do you want another Democrat? The Democratic Party has ruined Illinois and Cook County!!!!

The only difference between Edgar and Ryan? Edgar was smarter, sneakier and acted god-fearing. They are both tax-payer cheating louts.

Who said that Jim Edgar was a cheater? Where are you getting your information Homer?

I would also settle for Big Jim again but not the way how he is now.

Whether you like him or not, he would not pander or mammy pander to certain groups. I'm getting sick of politicans whether they are Dems or Reps who can not tell it like it is. I'm not saying that we need leaders who should be bad m fers but we need leaders who can not tell it like it is. If you don't like it then tough because you probably had it coming to you.

Like it or not, Illinois does love Ditka. I'm not sure if he lives here or not but he is an Illinois celebrity.

He would be an Excelent Governor just as much was a great Coach for the Chicago Bears and I still have my favorite when Iron Mike was with Bears were Packers rivalries and as a player he referred them as Red Bay Packers because of the bad blood between Bears and Packers
