Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)
Kirsten Gillibrand is the new Senator representing NY. She's a Democrat but many are wailing that she is too conservative. Well, she was conservative because she was elected to a conservative district. Her evolution is immediately beginning, at least in the area of gay rights. I assume that she will soon move even further to the left, maybe even losing her "Blue Dog" status. At least she will if she wants to get re-elected in 2010.
