    NY-23 is a huge district that covers all of the North Country and much of the Adirondack Park.  

    The Dems need to put up a tree-hugging Vietnam vet who isn't afraid to put his hands on a Holstein teat.

      and they tell me that moderate Republicans stayed home in droves last November because they couldn't get behind McCain/Palin, but also couldn't quite come over to Obama who they see through the lens of omnipresent right-wing media.

      I (a recovering Catholic from Long Island) went to Easter Mass with them a few weeks ago (they go on Easter and I was visiting and when in Rome...), and it felt like I was in a Fundie church service. The priest made it clear that they were not just Catholics, but "Catholic Christians".

      I don't know who's available to replace McHugh, but I'm sure Team Obama has thought about that already.

      I know the special interests and lobbyists are gearing up for a fight as we speak.
      My message to them is this: So am I -- President Barack Obama
