  •  Tough Being Freshman In Repub-Controlled House (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Look, I've enjoyed Murphy as my new Senator as much as anyone, but Esty is laboring under the shadow of a House controlled by the opposition party.  Murphy, at least, was elected in 2006 and enjoyed a House of Representatives which was controlled by the Democrats for four years.  During that time he would have been allowed to actually do something.  A freshman Representative in a House controlled by the opposing party isn't going to be allowed to do virtually anythihg of any significance.  Esty's biggest challenge is to avoid giving the Republicans ammunition to barrage her with going into her sophomore campaign, which is the most treacherous election ground in politics.
