Interesting to compare the unrelentingly antagonistic tone of this interview, The Man Behind Jeanine Pirro: He thinks she’s “the protoypical model for a successful statewide Republican.” (Greg Sargent, New York Magazine)

Despite that lost speech page at her Waldorf press conference, the Pirro campaign is off! Meet her brand manager, Kieran Mahoney, the former Pataki packager who previously ran her successful campaigns for Westchester D.A. Greg Sargent spoke with him.

Pirro says Hillary Clinton treats her job as a stepping-stone to the White House. But isn’t her own run a means toward greater fame—or a Fox News gig?
If she wanted a career in broadcast journalism, she could have it today. Pirro’s running to win.

Many think the part-time-senator attack line won’t be enough.
Those people have never won a New York statewide election. I’ve won many. Plus, we’ve also said Pirro has a record of fighting for the underprivileged and will be part of the Senate’s vital center.

But the suburbs are trending Democratic and upstate’s losing population.
Democrats like to say demographics favor them. But the real growth is among moderates and independents—people who like what Republicans have done fiscally and on terror and what Democrats have done on health and the environment. Pirro will have great appeal for them.

to this one or this one.

Rick, did you wake up this morning with one of those not so fresh feelings?

Was there 2 posts before mine? Or was I hallucinating this morning?

Hillary, or Clinton as she's answering to now, and friends haven't ever come up against the New York version of friends of the family. I think they'll find that Pirro won't scare easily.

This should be interesting.
