Jeanine Pirro to Challenge Hillary in Senate Race
Westchester District Attorney and television legal analyst Jeanine Pirro has finally made up her mind. For months, she's been going back and forth between running for Governor or Attorney General of New York or challenging Hillary Clinton for the New York Senate Seat. She has now decided on the Senate seat.
Jeanine is pretty much a one-issue person: Lock 'em up (and by extension, pass more victims' rights bills.) Hillary is no liberal on criminal justice issues, but she's fairer than Jeanine.
The interesting question though, is why did she pick the Senate race, which is all but impossible for her to win if Hillary is the opposing candidate. Here's her answer as to why she is running:
...she [Hillary] wants us to re-elect her even though she won't promise to serve out her term and wants to use us as a springboard to the presidency. She's asking us to become her doormat. I believe we deserve better."
I think her party is offering her up as a sacrificial lamb to batter Hillary before her 2008 run.
