    Seems like Republicans would rather fob this off on an aide as being beneath them. Anything poor people do has a taint they want to avoid.

    Ed FitzGerald for governor Of Ohio. Women's lives depend on it.

      Both Democrats running for mayor. Weiner is former Congressman (who forgot the whole don't post your penis on the internet rule for politicians and now wants to make a comeback...) and Liu is the current Comptroller of NYC and a former City Councilmember from Queens. Looked at by national standards both are good. On a local level Weiner leans pretty conservative. Other Dem candidates (presumably not doing the SNAP challenge) are Christine Quinn, Bill de Blasio, Bill Thompson and Sal Albanese. I have met all but Quinn and my wife has met her.
