Sen. Darrel Aubertine's steadfast support for his party will be turned against him in spades if he runs for Congress. But so what, the same issues will be used next year if he stays in the Senate. The most dangerous thing Aubertine is uttering is his equivocation on the Congress run based on concern over preserving the Democratic Senate majority in Albany. I wouldn't be publicly expressing concern over Pedro Espada's leadership if you expect to run in the North Country.
The month-long blow up at the Capital does not accrue to Senator Aubertine's image.....But it's the albatross he will carry this year and next....Might as well get it over with this year when a loss still leaves you with an office to hold.
