Chicago Tribune writer: Green Party’s Whitney most sensible, well-informed of IL gov candidates

After the Chicago Tribune joint interview of 5 candidates for governor of Illinois, Tribune op-ed columnist Eric Zorn blogged:

Of the five candidates for governor at the joint interview, Green Party nominee Rich Whitney was the best spoken, had the best command of the facts and, in my opinion, had the most sensible ideas for moving Illinois forward.

If we only had an instant-runoff voting system where a ballot cast  for a third-party candidate down in the polls, as Whitney is, isn’t a purely symbolic gesture at the expense of a voter’s second favorite candidate.

The post sparked an interesting discussion in the comments section, which you can read here.
