Stephanie Miner wins

Originally uploaded by Phil At Sun

Stephanie Miner took 50% of the vote in a three way race–a very
solid showing–and became the first woman elected Mayor
in a Big 5 city in New York State. So much for my lawn sign jinx.
After only backing losers for years I’m 3-0 in the last three races
Obama, Maffei and now Miner.

All three of those politicians are strikingly similar, despite the
obvious differences. Young, smart, policy wonk-ish. All of the
them, even Obama who has become an icon of cool, place substance over
image. Plans are clearly articulated and well
thought out.

New politics? It’s about time.
