  •  Teachout has a great chance in this primary. (14+ / 0-)

    The United Federation of teachers hasn't endorsed a candidate in the primary. Wanna know why? Membership is to divided to pick between Teachout and gov 1%. Same thing with Working Parties. They endorsed 1% after Teachout got 42% of their vote while being no one and only campaigning for 2 weeks. This primary I hope is going to shock a lot of the establishment. If everyone angry at gov 1% comes out - public workers - the poor - the middle class - basically anyone who isn't rich - and votes for Teachout then he will get blown away.

    Hey Kos! Yes it is dumb to say the parties are exactly the same on every issue - but it is dangerous and willfully ignorant to not acknowledge when their rhetoric is different but the ECONOMIC outcomes are the same.

    •  All that is true, (5+ / 0-)

      but the decision of various interest groups to either not endorse anyone or to endorse the incumbent does not support the premise Teachout has a "great chance."  

      I do agree, though, that if everyone votes for her that she will win.  

      Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.
