    I think the most electable Democrat is Edwards, or would be if he has enough money for a campaign. The other two candidates are too close to the existing Washington in crowd.

    But if everyone in New York says that their senator is the most electable, who am I to disagree?

    I agree with you (5.00 / 1) (#2)
