Senator Hillary Clinton (D – NY), Rep. Charles Rangel (D – NY 15th), Rep. Jerry Nadler (D- NY 8th): “The Ten Commandments”

Friday, November 3rd, 2006

Jacob and Barnett were having all the fun, so I decided to grab my friend Jen and see if we couldn’t get some clips ourselves. We got into a DCCC fundraiser in Midtown Manhattan, and had the chance to talk to two Congressmen and a Senator- none of whom knew the answer!- but each of whom had something interesting to say on the topic.

We lost audio (and would’ve lost video too, if Jen hadn’t guerrilla-like remembered she could record image on her Treo), but check the clip to hear what Congressman Nadler said- it might be the wittiest response we’ve gotten so far.

Special thanks also to Sasha Gordon for her invaluable editing assistance.

I think weekend voting would make the most sense, as people wouldn't have tu run home after work or wake up early to hit the polling stations beforehand.
