Why Miller's Scared of Weiner
Gifford is ranking low in the polls for Democratic Mayoral hopefuls, but who pays attention to polls in May? Not Gifford Miller...but he does pay attention to Anthony Weiner.
The Speaker's staff is baffled that the progressive populists of 2004 would even consider the Congressman. Weiner voted for the war. He blasted Howard Dean. He's calling himself a moderate.
So why are former Deaniacs swooning?
Maybe it's the enegy thing. Weiner comes out all-guns blazing, neck veins popping, wisecracks cracking. Gifford, maybe more Dean in dialogue, is more demure in demeanor.
How can you tell people that you're the progressive candidate if you're not willing to shout it?
If you're worried that Weiner's at your back, Giff, do what anyone should do when pursued: shout, shout, shout.
