Jay #4, Agreed. She also won two elections at a lower level.

P.S. Hillary came from Illinois, then Arkansas, then DC.

Interestingly and yet disappointingly lately lots of stories are jumping the gun in the media and they are getting lots of stories screwed up. In the name of getting out the story first, we the people are getting wrong information. Wake up!! You're doing a bad bad job, media.

I am glad to see Stringer modify his position. I am so sick of knee-jerk politics.

I think that Paterson may have been a little clumsy but I do not think he is at fault for the media frenzy. That was fostered by Bloomburg, his aides and Kennedy's underlings.

Is she really the only member of the NY delegation to vote against the TARP?

I like and admire Scott Stringer. I wish he would give her some time and then evaluate her record before running against her in a primary.
