I hope Chicago can figure it out. I lived there for two years, and absolutely loved it, even with the harsh winter. I think it is one of the most unique and beautiful cities in America (in the world), and it would be very depressing for it to go downhill and end up like a Saint Louis or Detroit. It's gonna take good governance and perhaps a check on the Democrats' grip on power in the state and cities, much like California, I think. Josh, do you think if moderate Republicans can make inroads in the state, it would help the politics and help with fiscal responsibility?
