That New York Poll

I'm not all that taken with the "Subway Series" storyline should Rudy and Hillary face each other in '08. Last I checked, Hillary was not a real New Yorker.

And Rudy supporters shouldn't read much into those polls showing Giuliani turning New York red. It's as unlikely as California for Vinick and Texas for Santos. A nice fantasy, maybe the icing on a 450 electoral vote landslide, but not a strategy. Republican candidates tend to run well in the state until Super Tuesday, until New Yorkers turn to their Democratic roots.

Focus on the achievable. Rudy has a better than 50-50 shot of turning New Jersey red, makes Pennsylvania a true swing state again, and would also have a fighting shot in Connecticut. He forces the Democrats to buy mucho points on New York TV even if New York proper isn't their target.

All that said, this is nice to see.
