With the State�s Attorney�s election in sight and the final candidate debate just around the corner, the race has become Wendy Scott-Carr�s to lose. After the scandal-ridden tenure of Florrick and the equally contentious term of his successor Glenn Childs, Chicagoans have found the political novice a breath of fresh air and now Scott-Carr seems poised to do the unthinkable: knock off two experienced politicians without the backing of Chicago�s political machine.

She�s our very own Taylor Swift: sure, maybe our teeth hurt from the sugar if we listen to her for too long, but she seems plucky enough, and we can�t hate her just because little birds dress her in the morning.

What do you think, readers? Is it time for Wendy to Speak Now? (Ugh, yes, we�ll show ourselves out.)
