Cuomo is a near certainty .  I think Durbin will have maybe a 70% at replacing Reid, while I think Reid has probably a 50-70% of losing reelection.  I disagree with the above poster, however, in that i think Obama also coming from Chicago will actually hurt Durbin's chances. 

What people might not get is that while Schumer is valued as a tactician, he is not particularly telegenic and Durbin is really good at what he does even if he's not always the best politician.  I think Schumer would be a far better majority leader, but I'm not sure if I trust the Democratic caucus to respect that.

We'll see. 

You are not implying Lunar are you that you think Durbin is telegenicSmiley
