WOW, JUST WOW: REALLY NOT JUST BUSINESS AS USUAL

President Obama had his Central District choices down to two, both outstanding civil servants and neither anything of a political heavy hitter.  He couldn't go wrong with either guy but he has nominated a lifetime civil servant, click here

The remarkable thing about both of these guys is that neither is prone to self-promotion.  They just do their work, treat their colleagues with dignity and appear on behalf of the United States of America in the most professional possible manner.  This is not business as usual.  Business as Usual would have been picking some political heavy hitter out of a private law office or State's Attorney's office and inserting that person into the U.S. Attorney's office.  That's not what happened.  

Senator Durbin and President Obama are to be congratulated for breaking the old mold.  Nobody has a better idea how a Government service law office is supposed to be run than Jim Lewis.

Oh, and Jim...if you're looking in here....That doesn't mean you can't be a pain in the ass once in a while, even to those of us who enjoy you.  You'd be disappointed if I went completely gooey over this, right?
