Mighty Madigan

Lisa Madigan is pretty determined to get Blago removed from his office. So what are her intentions? What motivated her to take on this agenda? Is it the distaste she has always had for Blago? Is it the constant war between her father Michael Madigan (Speaker of the Illinois House of Representatives) and Blagojevich? Was this something she decided to do for the benefit of the Illinois residents? Is this a political move on her behalf? Regardless of the reason, she has been waiting for a day like this. They clearly do not like one another. "Lisa Madigan says Blagojevich is incapable of governing now that he's been accused by the U.S. government of essentially trying to sell President-elect Barack Obama's Senate seat to the highest bidder."
Do you think that Lisa has her own aspirations of becoming Governor? I am not opposed to this idea, as a matter of fact. But I am extremely curious about Lisa’s current task. It’s a courageous move and I am curious about what’s next on the Attorney General’s roster.
