[PDI] a silly political joke and serious question...

An old country preacher had a teenage son, and it was getting time the boy
should give some thought to choosing a profession. Like many young Men his
age, the boy didn't really know what he wanted to do, and he didn't seem
too concerned about it. One day, while the boy was away at school, his
father decided to try an experiment. He went into the boy's room and placed on
his study table four objects..

1. A Bible

2. A silver dollar

3. A bottle of whisky

4. And a Playboy magazine

'I'll just hide behind the door,' the old preacher said to himself. 'When
he comes home from school today, I'll see which object he picks up.

If it's the Bible, he's going to be a preacher like me, and what a

blessing that would be!

If he picks up the dollar, he's going to be a business man, and that would
be okay, too.

But if he picks up the bottle, he's going to be a no-good drunken bum, and
Lord, what a shame that would be.

And worst of all if he picks up that magazine he's going to be a
skirt-chasing womanizer.'

The old man waited anxiously, and soon heard his son's foot-steps as he
entered the house whistling and headed for his room.

The boy tossed his books on the bed, and as he turned to leave the room he
spotted the objects on the table..

With curiosity in his eye, he walked over to inspect them. Finally, he
picked up the Bible and placed it under his arm. He picked up the silver
dollar and dropped into his pocket. He uncorked the bottle and took a big drink,
while he admired this month's centerfold.

'Lord have mercy,' the old preacher disgustedly whispered.
'He's gonna run for Congress.'

So who is going to run in the new IL 6th?

I heard Tammy Duckworth quit her high level position with the federal VA.
Is she going to run?
