If, even a month ago, you had asked me who I'd most like to see elected to Congress, I would not have mentioned Tom Geoghegan, because it wouldn't have even occurred to me that it was possible. Had you asked me about him in particular, I would have replied something on the order of "We should be so lucky". But he's running in the special election to replace Rahm Emanuel, and, well, we the people should be so lucky. The estimable Kathy G. has explained why Geoghegan deserves the support of progressives everywhere. I have nothing to add, other than to say that (1) if you haven't read Which Side Are You On?, you should buy it right now and read it at once; and (2) I have just put my money where my mouth is.
