The Democratic primary

I was honored to be invited by Tom Raleigh to his campaign announcement. This was today at the Italian Community Center (next door to my office), so I had to go.

He did a very good job of getting media to show up. Channels 6 and 13 were there, along with reporters from the Gazette and the Informed Constituent. There might have been one or two others.

I don’t think he’s got a snowball’s chance in Haiti, but I’m rooting for him in the primary. It’s an insider-outsider thing. The incumbent, along with Sweeney, Gillibrand, Pataki, etc. … they’re all political insiders. On the other hand, Raleigh, Sundwall and myself are outsiders. I’m the most inside of the three of us and I don’t feel like I’m on the inside.

Of course, if he wins the primary, I’ll have to stop rooting for him. :-)
