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.

It's nice you've taken a break from your Republican bashing in every single entry. I hope this continues because, no offense, the blog used to be much better before it got tediously repetitive.

Yeah, I've been thinking of tediously and repetitively bashing religion in the future. Maybe next post!

That is my hope about Gillibrand as well - that once in the Senate her views will move leftward!
