Republican hopeful Jeanine Pirro didn't waste any time getting on the campaign trail. Stumping at Manhattan's Waldorf-Astoria hotel today, Pirro affirmed her conservative stance on fiscal matters and liberal slant on social issues. Pirro showed her lack of tact by referring to the junior senator as "Hillary" throughout the speech, setting the tone for what is sure to be the rootin-tootinest mudslinging media frenzy of the 2006 midterm elections. Hailing from my home county of Westchester, the scandal-laden DA has been plagued with bad press about her husband's tax fraud and alleged mob connections along with accusations of corruption levied directly at her, offering a scarily similar "foil" to Senator Clinton's political liabilities. Pirro appears to be running on the platform that New Yorkers shouldn't vote for Clinton because of hype that she will be the Democratic presidential nominee in 2008. Already, the more than a year away race appears to be focusing on largely nonpolitical issues as Clinton and Pirro share virtually identical positions on many subjects such as Iraq, terrorism, abortion, and stem cell research. Let the stupidity begin.
