Hyde Parker Barbara Flynn Currie to Head Blagojevich Impeachment Panel.

Barbara Flynn Currie, the majority leader of the Illinois [General Assembly], has been chosen to run the Blagojevich impeachment committee. She is very smart, seemingly very honest, and (I seem to recall) a friend and ally of fellow Hyde Parker Barack Obama. She is not viewed as a machine politician, but rather as a moderately liberal reformer.

Currie is the widow of long-time Chicago law professor David Currie (and she is my local state representative).
