Where's our CongressTube?

Check out this video Liz Benjamin took of Kirsten Gillibrand talking about her position on same-sex marriage. (KG was responding to a story in the NYT that Malcolm Smith said same-sex marriage didn't have the votes to become law in NY this year.)


Gillibrand 'Disappointed' About Gay Marriage Delay from Elizabeth Benjamin on Vimeo.

Two things:

1) We can't help it, but the phrase "Dicker interview" makes us laugh a little bit too much.

2) At the risk of outing ourselves as C-SPAN watchers, it's interesting to see a politician's full answer to a question like this.

Speaking of that: YouTube has created "hubs" for both the Senate and House. Chuck Schumer already has his own channel (um, no surprise), but our other reps aren't set up, yet.

Gillibrand! Tonko! Whoever's the next KG! We want our CongressTube!

Senator Corning.. of course she would support gay marriage. Good for her. It is how she thinks she will get elected .. we shall see...

Whatever, I'm just glad to at least have some federal representation from Upstate.
