          A Tight Race For Kirk's Seat

          Here's the good news for Democrat Dan Seals: Rep. Mark Kirk (R), to whom he's lost twice, is leaving the seat to run for the Senate. Here's the bad news: If Seals couldn't win the seat with favorite son Barack Obama on the ballot as his party's presidential nominee, can he do it this year? Businessman Bob Dold may be more conservative than the usual array of Republicans who have won this seat in the past, but he is running a competitive race. -Ken Rudin
