Why do urban blacks seem to love machine politicians? Rangel should have been primaried by now.

If Rangel were defeated in a primary, it wouldn't be because of the African-American part of the district's population.

NYC has some powerful machines, I'd look at Joe Crowley as an even better example.

Well, it's easy in this case: Halvorson is white.

And I'm sure halvorson's white constituents would be clammoring to vot for a black congressman?

I don't think the Tribune sees it either. They went with JJJ.

And suburban. Really, the idea that she should have any sort of appeal in the northern half of this constituency is a bit ludicrous.

I may conceivably reconsider.

Knowing me it's more likely than not.
