"A former Green Party member who advocates an immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq says he will challenge incumbent Hillary Rodham Clinton for the 2006 Democratic nomination for Senate.

"She's in favor of the war and in favor of continuing the occupation," Steven Greenfield, a professional saxophone player, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from his New Paltz home."

Is this worth anything?

I figured that Hillary's feint towards the center would earn her a little left-wing backlash.

But as liberal as NY is - in the aggregate, due to NYC - is this guy a pretender or contender?

My vote is pretender. I don't think even unhappy leftists would abandon Hillary's ship.

Thoughts?

No, the lefty's are not going to abandon Hillary anytime soon. My gosh she has so much to offer the left :slight_smile:
