While its doubtful Democratic primary voters will oust a doyenne of politics like Rep. Carolyn Maloney, its interesting to see one of NYC's daily papers backing 34 year old upstart Reshma Saujani for the Upper East Side seat in Congress.
Inner city seats actually create more stasis than anywhere, because in a one-party environment, little changes and a Maloney or her neighbor, Rep. Charles Rangel, can go on forever.
Ms. Saujani is assertive, bright and has show an ability to raise the kind of money needed to speak truth to power. Her opponent accuses her of "Karl Rove tactics" in an effort to scare the base.
The Daily News editorial speaks for itself, but like I said....Ms. Maloney is a fixture and of course the NY Times still supports her.
