Gov. Rod Blagojevich was talking Thursday about who might replace President-elect Obama in the Senate.A Thanksgiving feast was on the mind of most people at the Chicago Christian Industrial League, but not everyone. Congressman Danny Davis was dishing about how much he'd like to take over Obama's seat, and the governor made positive remarks about him.

"He's certainly a strong candidate and under serious consideration. I'm breaking a rule, which is, I don't speculate on individual candidates, but in this case, because Danny's here and he's such a good guy, what the heck!" Governor Blagojevich said.

The governor also said he was taking his time in making the Senate decision and that he had no time table for filling Obama's seat.
