A 21st Century LBJ For Illinois

Bruce Rauner:

I want to get to know every legislator on a first name basis. I want to get to know them, their families, their hopes, their dreams, their fears, their weaknesses, their vulnerabilities. I want to get to know them well.”

Anyone who has read Robert Caro’s epic books on LBJ will know this is exactly how Johnson was and how he got legislation passed. He was a genius in that way. Of course Rauner hasn’t had the decades in the legislature that Johnson did, but he does understand that this is how you get things done in government.
