New Senator

Governor Patterson nominated Kristen Gillibrand to take Hillary's Senate seat. The NY Democratic party is not enamored with her. Why?
Looking at her record-in favor of gun rights, low taxes, and immigration enforcement; against the bailout and homophobia, she looks like my candidate. There are a lot of Goldwater Republicans out there-fiscally conservative, socially tolerant, strong on national defense-who are dissatisfied with the direction the GOP has taken. Democrats like Gillibrand could win a lot of them over. If anything, the Dems should run more people like her.
And if the Dems do try to fight her at the primary in 2010, she should consider switching to the GOP-at least this Republican will welcome her.
