commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Sen. Gillibrand the blah choice………

Well,….. Schumer and the White House have had their way……Kristen Gillibrand remains the democratic choice for junior senator for New York…….and quite frankly, she maybe a liability…….If someone like pollster Lee  Miringoff , up at Marist, can have George Pataki( remember the budget deficits he grew?) ahead of her by 4% points, right now , she’s in trouble………..seriously, I never thought she was the right pick, and she hasn’t, and probably never will, do well in the downstate area…like the present governor, New York Democrats have set them selves up for problems next year….Cuomo will take care of the governors spot…..but Gillibrand????

Burris, Corzine and Schumer………..

Well they are all democrats…..but that’s were it ends……..Roland Burris (D , IL) is thinking about changing his mind and running for re-election…..Jon Corzine, the New Jersey Governor is asking …….why won’t Christie answer his Freedom of Information requests on Christie’s actions and dealings as US Attorney in New Jersey?………and Chuck Schumer is on a roll……….Gillibrand, Sotomayor, Democratic senators elected, and the confirmation of the new US Attorney for the Southern District…….

Maloney will not run for the US Senate…….

Making a smart choice, Carolyn Maloney has taken herself out of the race for the US Senate from New York ( doing exactly the same thing as Carolyn McCarthy, in staying in a safe House seat ). She leaves Kristen Gillibrand, the rookie Senator, with clear sailing for the democratic nomination, and the seat for the full six years. Senior Senator Schumer has to be happy. He has gotten his way, and is done laboring behind the last New York junior senator,  Hillary Clinton, who stole almost all of his thunder for the past few years……..The voters of New York City will not really be happy……but what the heck?
