Thats right, Alexi Giannoulias, that mobbed up little rat fuck is currently being groomed on a Greek Beach by Dick Durban for a senate run in 2010. Why else would he be accompanying Durbin on a security junket.
Aside from the mob ties Giannoulias and his family have been very close allies with the Jacksons both politically and through business dealings.
If he does run for senator, knocking out the increasingly disgraced Roland Burris, there will be more than enough fodder for any election challenge. That is if the Illinois republican party can pull its head out of its ass long enough to win this seat.
