Mike Ditka's Biggest Mistake



In 2004, Mike Ditka mulled a run for Illinois's vacant senate seat. The prohibitive favorite was state senator Barack Obama, and the Republicans couldn't find someone to go against him. Committee chair George Allen, son of the hall of fame coach, met with Ditka (who described himself as "ultra-ultra-ultra conservative") and urged him to run. Ditka considered it, but eventually declined, citing his busy schedule. It still eats away at him to this day.

As noted by the Atlantic Wire, Ditka spoke at the opening of a North Dakota oil facility last week. (He had "no idea" why he was there. "My secretary sets everything up.") He said not stopping Obama's rise to power remains his greatest regret:
"Biggest mistake I've ever made," Ditka said. "Not that I would have won, but I probably would have and he wouldn't be in the White House."
I'm not saying someone should write a sequel to The Man in the High Castle set in an alternate universe where Mike Ditka became president, but I'm totally saying it.

If that happened, it would have been after the GOP primary winner withdrew because of the scandal arising from what the wife alleged in the divorce.

GOP ended up with Alan Keyes. Who really had no connection to Illinois. He was just a black Republican to run against Obama.

I don't think Ditka would have had much luck showing up in the race as a last minute replacement to the guy that won the primary. If he wanted the job and ran in a primary and won, maybe he would have a chance.

But I don't see him winning in Illinois in 2004 especially if he spoke his mind about his political beliefs which you would think he would have to do during debates and such.

Yeah, but Ditka's not a liberal so it must have been minimal.

So you're saying he has less brains, so less chance of concussion damage?
