My Home State, New Jersey, showing its progressive creds

The days of Christie are over, gone, done. And for anyone thinking our new Democratic Governor wasn't liberal enough, left of center enough, this one's for you.





Congrats New Jersey. You're helping lead the way back to sanity--13th state and counting.

She's thrilled with the change. The state still has a lot of problems; taxes are off the rails despite all Christie's promises and arm-twisting. Hopefully, a broader voting base will ensure more responsible and engaged governance, instead of the bully-boy, brow-beating approach.

Voting rights are essential to a functioning democratic society. So, this is very good news.
