    they do not equate. The problem with Caroline is that she had done nothing to earn the job or show that she could do it. Kirsten has. Objections to her are in regard to positions she has taken. Both objections to Caroline and Kirsten are legitimate concerns.

    Caroline can solve hers by actually running for office, winning and then showing us whether she is up to the task or not. We already know that Kirsten can run for office, win, and that she is up to the task of performing the job.

    What we don't know yet is whether she'll be the horrenously conservatve Newt Gingrich/John Sweeny/Tom DeLay Republican that people seem to hyperventilating about or whether she'll represent her liberal state as well as she did her conservative district.

    And that is where I ask that people give her a chance. She's earned it.

    Peace,

      and what it includes is pathetic: One undistinguished DINO term in the House, 12 years of representing the worst sort of corporate clients (tobacco and securities interests), and family and personal ties to sleazy lobbyists (e.g., her father and D'Amato). Way to go NY in finding that change we can believe in!!
