    a lot of that. It has been a tiring day. I think people are so used to hyperventilating about the real problems we've had with Republicans the last few years that it is second nature to see disaster lurking around every corner. Kinda like a post-traumatic syndrome of some sort.

    I would suggest to people that they give her a chance and if in 2 years they think she is a horrible Senator then they should support a primary challenger to her.

    If in 2 years they think she is a great Senator then they should support her against any primary challengers.

    If in 2 years they think she is a perfectly fine Democratic Senator from the Great State of New York but exactly their perfect vision of the most Perfectest Senator you ever could or would desire in your heart... then I think they'l be like 99.999% of other Democrats that will be perfectly happy with Gov. Paterson's pick and will vote overwhelmingly to re-elect her for another 2 years.

    All I ask is that folks relax and give her a chance. I am perfectly confident that she will satisfy most all reasonable people and that she will be re-elected by a solid margin in 2 years and then again 2 years after that and then again 6 years after that.

    Peace,

    •  Hmmm... (0+ / 0-)

      that third option is supposed to have a "not" in there as in "not exactly their perfect vision... yada yada blah blah"

      Say goodnight Gracie.

      Goodnight Gracie.
