  •  He really captured me with his refusal to play pol (10+ / 0-)

    politics after Sandy and embraced Obama with open arms at a time the gop wanted him to ignore him completely.  He knew that his pressers about Obama and the help he was getting were the last thing republicans wanted but he was honest about his praise and the needs of his people and grateful for the help. His refusal to let Mitt do a photo op also impressed me.

    Hope we can flip him.  He is one i see evolving into a good democrat albeit centrist to blue dog.  I dont think he has a future in the gop anyway they think he betrayed them by not playing politics with the hurricane

    •  He won't flip, and we shouldn't want him to. (0+ / 0-)

      He's a Republican, always will be, and a number of the things he's done (consider him cancelling the additional rail tunnel into NYC) are pretty slimy.  But I do respect him a fair bit more than I did a few months ago.
