  •  DeBlasio is a better candidate. (0+ / 0-)

    He's progressive without Weiner's baggage.

    "While" is a perfectly good word. "Whilst" just sounds pretentious, unless you speak British english.

    •  Well, Weiner's in the lead. (0+ / 0-)

      You've got to step to the conservative assholes at some point.

      •  It's a primary. No conservative assholes (0+ / 0-)

        until the general election.

        •  that wasn't what I meant, sorry (0+ / 0-)

          I meant, running away from conservative assholes in the press (and other places) and their hatchet jobs on Democratic politicians, esp. left-wing ones.

          Not that this particular hatchet job wasn't based on the truth rather than lies--but you still have to stand up to the people wielding the axe sometime.

    •  I would vote for Lhota over DeBlasio (0+ / 0-)

      I think Bill Thompson has a very good shot.  I plan to vote for Weiner although my heart is with Liu.

      •  Thompson proved the last time he couldn't (0+ / 0-)

        campaign his way out of a paper bag. I offered to volunteer via email, and no one got back to me. Totally disorganized. I'm not familiar with Lhota or Liu.

        •  Really? His campaign wouldn't leave me (0+ / 0-)

          alone even though I told them I would not knock on doors.  I'm not sure any dem could have beat Bloomberg. A lot of registered dems voted for Bloomberg.  

          •  the election turned out to be very close. (0+ / 0-)

            If the media hadn't constantly portrayed the race as in the bag for Bloomie, there would have been more turnout and it would have gone the other way. With a better campaign and just the tiniest bit of charisma (of which Thompson has none) that might have happened.
