The article presents the author's comments on new president of the Illinois Senate, John Cullerton. The author states that in his first few weeks in office, Cullerton seems to have tiptoed his way through a field chock-full of land mines left behind by his predecessor, Emil Jones. According to him, the man is funny, smart, and off to a good start, but it will take a while yet to find out how good he really is at this president stuff.
