TOM PERRIELLO . . .
. . . is a terrific freshman Congressman who – like many Democrats swept into office last year in traditionally-Republican districts – is likely to face a stiff challenge in 2010. Watch him on Morning Joe, here.
CAROLYN MALONEY . . .
. . . is a terrific veteran Congresswoman who couldn’t possibly lose her seat in 2010 – unless she abandons it to run for Hillary Clinton’s old Senate seat. (The problem with that is that there’s someone in that Senate seat – a pro-marriage-equality Democrat, Kirsten Gillibrand, endorsed for reelection by everyone from President Obama and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. to NARAL and EMILY’s List.) It would be a terrible idea, as I argue here.
