Replace Rahm Emanuel With Tom Geoghegan?

It's sort of funny that the only Google News hit I've got for this is a blogger who learned about it the same place I did -- a facebook page set up by Rick Perlstein. But it looks like Tom Geoghegan is thinking about running for Rahm Emanuel's vacated House seat. I don't know a whole lot about Geoghegan, except that he's a badass labor lawyer who wrote a book called "Which Side Are You On?: Trying to Be For Labor When It's Flat On Its Back" that Ezra liked a lot. And I'm told it's pronounced "Gaygen".

Update: He'd like to amend the Civil Rights Act so that people can't be fired merely for being union members. That sounds pretty awesome.
