One big frustration here in Chicago: despite the unendorsement of every bar association, the Chicago Tribune, citizens' groups, and me, Susan McDunn was retained as a judge with 68% YESes. It's a small consolation that she received the most NOes and least YESes of any judge. It was very frustrating last night to be at an election night gathering and overhear an otherwise-politically-aware friend say, "I got confused by all the judges, so I just voted Yes on all of them." Damn, I say, it.
