I’m actually interested in the possibility of Alan Keyes taking on Barack Obama for the Illinois Senate seat. I’m not very fond of the carpet-bagging aspect of it: I did not like when Hilary Clinton miraculously became a New Yorker in 2000, and it would be a bit disturbing if Keyes did the same. What does excite me is the idea that we could have a race between two well-spoken, intelligent, rational men who occupy the polar opposites on most issues. This possibility, the chance for reasonable and interesting political discussion, especially during a Presidential campaign where it will be severely lacking, is something this country would benefit from.

National attention of an Obama-Keyes debate would be watched in even greater numbers than the Minnisota Mondale-Coleman debate. I'll have my bowl of popcorn ready!
