30. Maybe now is the time to stop her in her NY Primary?
As a New Yorker, I've been looking hard at the alternatives to Hillary. (Since 9/11, I've given up on hoping that she'll start representing me and my values.)

So I can't help being impressed by Jonathan Tasini. (See if you want to know why.) The man is politically experienced, wonderfully articulate, and completely straightforward about what he is for. And that is progressive ideas and values.

On Daily Kos today, he waded courageously into the Israel-Palestine-Corrie issues. Not only was he clear about what needs to happen regarding Israeli policy if all parties (including the U.S.) have any hope of moving forward together, but he was just as clear about what issues he wasn't going to try to address at the moment. No easy answers, no cure-all, no papering over conflicts and difficulties - just good solid movement toward peace and justice, with an appropriately supportive U.S. role. What a refreshing change!

So I'm encouraging every Dem who knows me to vote for Tasini over Clinton. With lots of support and a little luck we won't have Hillary to kick around anymore ...
