    Gillibrand is incredible -- only a very few times, for a second, does she look down at her notes.  She speaks knowledgeably and passionately without "ums" and "ahs" while looking directly and Stabenaw.  

    And, again, also, too -- I remember the way-back machine here when Gillibrand was too conservative for many here to support for that seat.  The preference was the untested, shy, inarticulate Caroline Kennedy.

      in the House. She represented her constituents. Now that she represents the whole state, she can vote more liberally, still representing her constituents. Previous comments weren't inaccurate. She changed. For the better.

        didn't consider the beginning of your comment.  Caroline Kennedy would have been a bank bencher and horrible.  

        There were numerous things not considered about Gillibrand.  Folks liked to focus on her 2nd Amendment stance.

        Water over the damn, under the bridge, etc.
