Lining Up for Democracy

Get yer democracy, right here folks:

City Hall paints out a flow chart for the possible chain reactions in state and local government that could occur if Hillary Clinton goes to Sec. of State.  It inadvertantly gives you a perspective on the insider-baseball of NY state politics – all of these people are connected in one or two degrees of seperation, and the assumtpions about who could fill whose spot shows the chain of political favors that connect them.  I think this provides yet another argument for term limits – everything should be done to shuffle these folks out of office just to break up the insular club that only changes up when someone resigns or is offered a higher office in government.
