View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Obama to Governor Paterson - Don't Run?

You know you're in trouble when the President, a member of your own party, asks you not to run for re-election because it might hurt the Party!

According to a New York Times article, that's allegedly what President Obama has basically done to NY Governor David Paterson.

Paterson has done a poor job, is on the wrong side of a number of issues, and is way down in the polls - Bush country. Apparently the concern is that if he does run next year it will hurt the chances of other Democrats in the state (such as my own Congressman Massa?). I know I won't vote for Paterson - unless the Republicans run a neo-Nazi.

The Democrats seem to want the very popular NY Attorney General Andrew Cuomo to run for Governor instead. I suspect he would have a far better chance than Paterson would. I'd consider voting for him.
