Better than Maddow w/Nicole Kidman: Berkowitz w/Chris Robling on the GOP's resurrection. On Rockford Cable and Streaming

Jeff Berkowitz: Carol Marin, you’re not sure[if she is a liberal]?

Chris Robling: Carol Marin has a column, so I am a little more clear on her position.
Chris Robling: I think we’ll see Barack Obama leave [(ND,IL) U. S. Attorney Patrick] Fitzgerald there for the time being.

Jeff Berkowitz: For how long? Long enough to—

Chris Robling: Through an indictment of [Gov.] Rod Blagojevitch.
Jeff Berkowitz: You would have trouble finding a half a dozen Republicans in the State House who support vouchers. Tom Cross-I’m only picking on-because he is the [House Republican] leader and I know he won’t.

Chris Robling: Okay.
Jeff Berkowitz: You think a lot of people in the Republican Party who are in the State House support school vouchers?

Chris Robling: I think there are some.

Jeff Berkowitz: Can you name two?

Chris Robling: I am not saying that there are a lot. I, you know-- but I think that’s illustrative of the disjunction, okay. This is, Jeff, exactly the problem. We’ve got a ferment of Republican, or let’s say right of center, or market oriented ideas.

Jeff Berkowitz: You and Dan Proft, you’ve got two Republicans out there. You’re making it sound like there are 120 legislators who are behind you.
