When Jim Ryan gets up to speak, it's usually as much a performance as a speech. At a meeting of turf reporters a few days before this year's Kentucky Derby, the highly charged Ryan began talking about racing's ills with tears in his eyes. The venue was an outdoor picnic at Churchill Downs, and the crowd was inattentive and restless. Ryan put two fingers to his mouth and whistled the audience to attention.

Open sesame, indeed. "I was pleased but surprised," Rowe says.

Jim Ryan, Illinois attorney general and front-runner for the Republican gubernatorial nomination in next year's election, said he will stay in the race despite being diagnosed with cancer again. "My prognosis for the future is very good," the 55-year-old Ryan told a news conference after doctors disclosed he had been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma for the third time since 1996. He said the cancer detected in a nodule behind his right ear was "low grade and very treatable."

Rep. Rod Blagojevich will try to become the first Democrat to win the Illinois governor's office in 30 years in part by linking his opponent, Republican Jim Ryan, to a bribery scandal involving the outgoing GOP governor.
