Congressman Peter Roskam has sprung a leak, at least according to POLITICO:
Rep. Peter Roskam oozed with confidence Tuesday, predicting that he would eventually emerge from the three-way race for House majority whip as the winner. "I think when the dust settles on Thursday, Peter Roskam's going to be the majority whip," the Illinois Republican said in an interview with POLITICO in his Capitol office Tuesday.
Peter Roskam predicts whip success
Note to ops: the Wikipedia says that illeism -- referring to oneself in the third person -- often is used to convey ...
an air of grandeur, to give the speaker lofty airs. Idiosyncratic and conceited people are known to either use or are lampooned as using illeism to puff themselves up or illustrate their egoism.
But your LakeCountyEye digresses.

Peter Roskam, Lake County's casual Congressman, has challenged two opponents to a steel-cage death match for the ultimate Washington DC prize: Majority Whip. The winner-take-all Republican caucus vote is scheduled for Thursday. The magic win number is 117 -- which perhaps uncoincidentally is the national emergency telephone number in the Philippines.

Roskam may exude confidence, but that doesn't mean his staff hasn't set up a phone-a-friend lifeline:
Dial 117 before it's too late!
