Something to keep in mind when trying to figure out who our governor is going to pick to replace Obama

Is that a rational actor model in fact requires, well rational actors. Our governor is not a rational actor. So when you read the national punditocracy try and apply logic to what the governor is trying to do, remember the governor at his core at this point is not logical.

He is the guy who would call a draw play on 4th and 35...

If you want some examples....

A) State has a huge budget problem, he just closed a bunch of state parks but decides to take the state aircraft to a governors meeting the next week.

B) Has referred to the senate seat as a Christmas gift.

C) Has named one candidate Danny Davis even referring to him as senator. The same Danny Davis that crowned the Rev. Sun Myung Moon in a religious ceremony.


The list goes on and on....
