  •  A big idea. I like this direction (5+ / 0-)

    I was expecting Weiner to play it safer but this is a good, big move. A couple more big ideas and he'll sew up the "anybody but Quinn" vote. It's interesting to me how much hatred Quinn has generated on the street. I've got friends who are so not political junkies, very close to street life (not that there's anything wrong with that) who have been on anti-Quinn raves in the park. It's partially the Bloomburg connection and partially they just don't like her.

    If you didn't like the news today, go out and make some of your own.

    •  Weiner has a lot of support (5+ / 0-)

      Especially among old schoolers. Interestingly, middle aged women are behind him, the men have more of a problem. This is what I'm seeing in my old school Brooklyn neighborhood which happens to be DeBlasio's old council district. We also like Weiner for his advocacy to get Newtown Creek super funded.  We got a Superfund site here too.
