Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

What do I think of Sean Eldridge?  Well, it's obvious he's for Obamacare and he'll become just like every other liberal Democrat.  And he's married to one of the co-founders of Facebook?  I'm not worried.
Democratic Candidate running in New York's 19th Congressional District, Sean Eldridge (husband of Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes) has just released his first campaign video explaining why he is running for Congress.

Video below the fold...


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

In this video, Eldridge focuses a great deal on his business experience.  He also mentions a big issue he's fought for (and will likely fight for in Congress) is campaign finance reform.

In addition, recently Eldridge was interviewed and he explains he's tired of the gridlock in Washington D.C.  He also points out his pro-environment views particularly as he's against fracking.

All in all, Eldridge appears to be pretty confident in his first interview and on camera so there's a good reason to believe he'd be a good debater on the stage with Rep. Chris Gibson, whom he's challenging.

So why not vote for Sean Eldridge for Congress in NY-19?
