Lexingtion calls the Illinois senate race

From The Economist (sub. req.), on why Obama will win:
The Keyes candidacy also smacks of tokenism. The candidate routinely denounces affirmative action as a form of racial discrimination. But what other than racial discrimination can explain the Illinois Republican Party's decision to shortlist two blacks for the Illinois slot — and eventually to choose Mr Keyes? He brings no powerful backers or deep pockets, and was thrashed in his two runs for the Senate in Maryland.
And while you're at it: why yes, Chicago is "America's best run city".
