The state of Illinois, where Barack Obama hails from, seems to be collapsing all around itself. Chicago has the highest murder rate of any city in America, (even higher than combat deaths in Iraq), the Tribune Co. has filed for bankruptcy, laid off workers are staging sit-in's and demanding 60 days severance and vacation pay from out-of-business companies, and now, just this morning, Illinois Governor Rob Blagojevich was arrested on federal corruption charges. Is Obama bringing the success of his state to the White House?
