2. I live in NY
It's bold, but it's not going to happen. I would give it a 0% chance. Tasini has raised 150,000. Hillary has like $33 million besides the biggest name in the party. She also has at least 80% positive support.

8. Think New Hampshire 1968
McCarthy didn't win, but he showed that it wasn't inevitable that a sitting president get the party nomination. Right now the common wisdom is that $33 million, excuse me, Hillary Clinton can't be beat. All Tasini has going for him is that his views represent those of most New York Democrats.

21. Great line...
**Right now the common wisdom is that $33 million, excuse me, Hillary Clinton can't be beat. All Tasini has going for him is that his views represent those of most New York Democrats.**

Tasini will not have the time to explain his platform. Actually, I hear it costs $500,000 to get on the NY1 News Channel Townhall Debate. New Yorkers won't hear it. Even though he is for labor, gay marriage, pro-choice, a two-state ME solution, and an end to war. Most NYers would vote for those issues. If they knew who he was and what he represented.

But in these times of uncertainly, people with stick with the Clinton Brand. Lucky for us, Hillary isn't a terrible candidate (at least in my opinion.)

29. Why do we always settle for second best?
How much do you spend each month for a net connection so you can talk politics? Why not send some of that cash to Tasini now and make a real difference? Don't be shy if you're not from New York. A lot of Hillary's money isn't from here either.

40. I'm givin' it all I got.
I will be working on Tasini's campaign. He'd understand why I have no money to give him. He was on my picket line fighting for my job when I got fired for union activity. I am actually risking going to jail for 15 days in his honor. He and I and 58 other people were arrested for fighting for union rights. The prosecutors office singled out Tasini, my union president, a priest, the head of the AAUP (American Association of University Professors), and one or two others for a 15 day jail term while the rest of us got off. I, along, with about 45 others said that if you're going to punish one of us, you should punish all of us. So now we are all facing 15 days in jail for civil disobedience and they are going to have to face the decision to drop the charges or put us all in jail.

The best I can do is drag every lazy gen-x no-votin' progressive that I know to the polls.

I spend $0 on a net connection. So my net bucks won't help.

You certainly have walked the walk. I'm really aiming at all the people who could make a difference but who just assume that the fix is in and aren't willing to lift a finger for change.

47. No offense taken! I agree. Just because "the fix is in" doesn't mean...
we can't raise hell.

There's no reason not to fight for what you believe in even when there's no real hope. Especially when the fighting only boils down to pulling a damn lever.

I think even a 20% showing for Tasini would give HC some quivers.

11. There is about zero percent of a republican senate victory in NY
Have you seen the republican candidates? They're laughable. One's own brother came forward and said she was one of the most hateful and petty people he ever met! The other is just as embarrasing.

Tasini will get all the labor vote as well. He was a union president for 13 within the AFL-CIO.

32. Who is the Republican challenger?
20 bucks if you can name them without looking it up.

There is not a chance in hell that either of the Republicans on the ballot would win this seat, regardless of which candidate wins the Dem primary. The Dem primary is the whole race, the Republicans are completely irrelevant.

39. Keep Your 20 LOL
You're probably right. I just know how important november is so I'm extremely careful in picking who I'll support. In this case you are correct in the fact that the Dem primary winner will almost certainly win the seat. So having that said I just don't really have any animosity towards Hillary like many others do. I think she is a fine democrat.

43. Sure, she's fine. If you like illegal wars and occupations.
If you like the death penalty, if you like Rupert Murdoch. If you like the pharmaceutical industry that's funding her campaign. If you like discrimination against same-sex couples, if you'd like to criminalize flagburning, if you want to bring the troops home someday in the future, but not just now, no timetables, enduring bases, then yeah, she's just fine.

4. It's late in the game, but I'm up for a challenge.
Clearly, I like Hillary much better than Joe-ndependent. At least she's a DEMOCRAT. I hope that this forces Hillary to listen to the base and take a stance against Bush. The Tasini race can at least accomplish that.

I am a HUGE fan of Tasini. I have personally seen the good he's done-- and I mean in real life. I am going to try to get out the vote for him as best I can, but the primary is only a month away and he just entered the race.

Tasini is more of an intellectual who is really nuanced on the issues. He doesn't have that cute, almost innocent appeal of Lamont. I'd just like to see Tasini show well to set him up for a future, better financed run.

Lamont would've been in different waters if he didn't have the money to back up his bid.

16. If Lamont was poor he wouldn't be where he is.
Tasini is working class. Unfortuntately, there isn't much hope. Unless Hillary messes up big time.

I find it interesting how people spin it like Hillary is somehow a better candidate because she has a huge war chest, some of it coming from Rupert Murdoch himself.

As Walt Whitman-- another NYer-- said: "Battles are lost in the same spirit they are won."

I'm still going to fight for the candidate I want and work for my principles. Then I'll pull the lever for Hillary.

30. In the Primary, my vote goes to Tasini.
But if he loses (which, unfortunately, is a strong possibility) I will vote for Clinton.

I won't vote for her in the 2008 Presidential primary if that's what you mean. No way. But I'll vote for her against a Republican for sure.

33. I think that goes without saying.
Even Hillary is better than a Republican. What I am afraid of though, is that if she gets the Senate nomination without a fight, party leaders will find a way to hand her the presidential nomination two years down the road. They pulled that stunt with John Kerry, and look where we are today. The New York Presidential primary is so late that generally most of the candidates drop out before we get a chance to vote. Our Presidential primary, the one that counts, is September 12, 2006. It's our only chance to vote up or down on Hillary.

31. good point....
That in itself is a reason to vote Tasini. There are A LOT of reasons, IMO. If anything HC needs to know that there is a groundswell of support for someone who just entered the race one month ago. It'll also (hopefully) stop her from feeling the need to support Flag Burning Amendments and other such tripe (I mean voting against it to keep the dem base happy and suggesting a similar amendment to pander to possible presidential votes.)

28. True. I'm a down-state NY and my family is up. Tasini has no chance.
I have a better chance of winning the powerball than Tasini has of unseating Hilary. And I hate Hilary.

The upstaters have embraced her because they feel she's fighting for them. Actually, they like her because she's centrist. Upstate NY is mostly red, except for some college towns around the big cities.

But I know people who work for tasini and he never thought he'd win: He just wanted to challenge her on the war and make the issue get s ome air time. For that, I'll show up at the primary and give him my vote, only because I know it won't help, except to hurt Hilary's feelings a little. If she has any.

60. What coalition?
The coalition of the easily suckered? But you're right, she owns NY: NY1, the cable TV station that's set an arbitrary rule of $500K either spent or raised, for participation in the senatorial debate on Aug 22, is owned by Time Warner Cable. Tasini's the only candidate who's not invited. TWC PAC has, so far, given $101,000 to candidate Clinton (check it out on http://www.opensecrets.org/politicians/contrib.asp?CID=... ). Seems to me as though a) the "debate" is an endorsement of Clinton, b) lots of TW employees obviously gave their bit, c) therefore Clinton sure does literally own NY. The media is the message, etc. Problem is, is the Clinton Machine what we want in NY? What happened to a fair playing field, where you and I can hear what each candidate has to say? And how about ISSUES rather than MONEY as arbiter of political discourse? Remember Connecticut: one down, one more to go!

Edited on Wed Aug-09-06 01:30 AM by Superman Returns
with this Lamont victory. Our purpose is to fight Repulicans not our own. Lieberman was right to go against for reasons I explained in other threads. Now as far as Hillary, she may not be to your liking but she is a good Senator who delivers for her constituents. The coalition is: upstateNY/middleclass/Jews/African Americans/Hollywood/hispanics/woman. She is no Lieberman or will she ever be. She has both liberals and moderates in her pocket in NY. The Clintons have captured all possible demographics. Every major NY politician supports her from Rangel to Spitzer to Koch to Dinkins. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton wouuld never betray her. Lets get real.

..as they are dying with Lieberman's support of the war. I don't care if she's got more money than Bill Gates, how much money is a person's life worth? I'll be damned if I will support anyone that supports this war in Iraq. I have to live with my conscience a hellavuh lot longer than Hillary will be in politics. I have sons of age too, and I have seen several of their friends join the military and are in Iraq as I speak. I used to worry how their friends will have changed when they come back home. Now I just hope they come back home.
