    Yeah, he's sorta conservative, alright. "The Evan Bayh of New York state" is the description I've heard and like. However, I don't think he's very much a "small government conservative", which is what people generally mean when they talk about Libertarian conservatives. My impression of him (from across the country, so possibly not very precise) is that he uses conservative goals to shore up his own power. So the things like the property tax cap and his betrayal of the Democrats in the state Senate just burnish his halo among "reasonable" upstate GOP-leaning moderates. He's the kind of Democrat they can vote for.

    My country, right or wrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right.
