        ...may be that both major parties in NY (as well as some minor ones like the Liberal Party) are dominated by self-serving machine politicians who aren't very attractive when taken outside their natural ward/state assembly district constituencies. As a result, the folks who can appeal on a state level seem to be outsider/celebs like Giuliani, Clinton, Moynihan, and so forth.
