I'd love to see it happen but he'd be running in a very tough district--a very good chance he would lose. Taking that seat Gillibrand kind of ran to the right on a lot of things and in '06 when she first won it was a nailbiter. A number of other of her NYS democratic colleauges in the house were not very pleased by Patterson's Senate selection as Gillibrand is considered too conservative. Mike was behind John Hall's campaign in a neighboring but much more liberal district. It just doesn't seem like a good fit.
