Irony Alert: The Super Delegates will nominate Obama

There's been a lot of discussion about what will happen tonight if our Senator, Hillary Clinton, who I have supported, wins OH and RI, but loses TX and VT; will she fight on for the Super Delegates and the seating of the MI and FL delegates and go on to PA, et al., with the "momentum" that she wins important General Election states like OH?

The answer is no, she won't, because the pressure for her to drop out will be tremendous. And who will it be that makes sure she drops out? The Super Delegates, because they want to win and know this campaign is getting ugly and want a nominee now who they can start circling the wagons around so the fight with John McCain can really begin.  In other words, the Super Delegates will do what they are supposed to do: bring the party together.



The 2008-13 MTA Capital Plan: The Costs Are Out of Control

The situation our transportation system finds itself in, as evidenced by the proposed 2008 to 2013 MTA Capital Plan, is in part an outgrowth of the broader generational war that has also affected federal, state and local debts of all types, labor deals featuring richer pension benefits for those cashing in and moving out and lower pay and benefits for new employees, and a general decline in infrastructure investment. But it is also the result of the capture of our government in Albany by producers of public services, in the public, private and non-profiteer sectors, at the expense of consumers of public services and taxpayers. If you want to be robbed by public employee unions, you are a Democrat; if you want to be robbed by contractors, you are a Republican; if you want to be robbed by the non-profiteers, you can be either. But if you don’t want to be robbed at all, you are out of luck. Given what contractors have been charging the MTA for capital projects, it is no surprise that money has been borrowed, because there is no way New Yorkers could have collectively afforded to spend so much in the past. Given that, how can we afford to spend that much and more, plus the interest on past debts, in the future?
