Joliet mentioned on MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann

During  MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann,  MSNBC analyst Lawrence O'Donnell referenced Joliet, IL, while discussing health-care town halls held across the country today.  

O'Donnell was asked by Olbermann: "What should we make of Mr. Obama in New Hampshire, skeptics reasonable to his face, others with vile things to say, sort of at the perimeter."

O'Donnell responded: "Well now you see why Senators want to be President.  If Barack Obama was doing a town hall meeting in Joliet today, as the Senator from Illinois, he'd probably be getting shouted down a bit, he'd probably be running into Arlen Spector troubles..."
