  •  Good for you, Adam B (0+ / 0-)

    I'm actually really excited to see a Kossack be a major player in a major campaign.

    As for Margolies, what are her politics (obviously asking someone other than you so you don't break your neutrality)? Blue Dog, progressive, etc?

    •  Given that she was apparently the deciding (0+ / 0-)

      vote in a tax-hike bill and made the vote knowing she'd pay for it, I'd say she's progressive - and braver than most Democratic politicians.

      This is not to say anything against State Sen. Leach, who seems and sounds like a pretty good guy.

      But a woman who's willing to make a deciding vote knowing that it will cost her her career (PA-13 was a rural, Republican district at the time, and Margolies had only won by 1,700 votes in 1992) for the sake of good governance and sensible government is a good choice.
