  •  I do not accept the idea that NY Democrats (0+ / 0-)

    are entitle to the same respect as national Dems.  I will proudly vote for John Hall but the Democrats running the NY State Senate were an embarrassment beyond anything imaginable.  

    There is nothing on earth that could get me to vote for Eric Schneiderman.

      As much as you might dislike Democrats in our state, particularly in the State Senate, think about how much worse it would be with Republicans back in control. Also, don't forget that giving Republicans the State Senate means giving them a say in redistricting.

        ...and I take no back seat to anyone in supporting progressive issues for many, many years.

        I do not fear Republican control of the State Senate as much as I do the continuation of what passed for leadership over the past two years.  Robert F Kennedy might have explained it better to you than I have, but the Senate of 1966 is a pantheon of heroes compared to this bunch.

      yes, the State Senate is bad. Real bad. And could use a serious housecleaning of pretty much all of them. But of the 62 there are about 4-5 of them that are worth a damn and in my opinion Eric Schneiderman is one of them. Perhaps the best of them.

      •  Eric Schneiderman is one of Them (0+ / 0-)

        A full fledged member and proud of it.  He jumped on the get rid of Monserrate bandwagon when it was forced on a Senate which would rather have looked the other way, as they have over and over and over again during the two years of shame they brought.  As disgraceful as the Bruno years were, in fact, these people did the impossible, and outdid him.

        In its more sober moments the Times had it right.

          Guilt by association. ok.

          The facts remain however that he is one of the five in the Senate that were worth a darn and will be an excellent Attorney General for us.
