    ...and did you read my post? There is such a thing as conservative NYC Democrats, and this district is full of them. When they are presented with a lackluster candidate who cast a vote on a hot-button social issues, and his well-spoken opponent is endorsed by local religious leaders as well as two high-profile politicians who are much esteemed in this community (Koch and Giuliani), this is the result you are likely to get.

    You might look at some of the analysis of the Democratic victory in NY-26 to get an understanding of why special elections are often not predictive.

    I say, get over it and move on. We have other battles to fight.

    The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.
