Daily News Podcast Interview with Chris Owens
Here is the link to the Ben Smith Interview with Chris Owens. Once again, I think race takes up too much of the dialogue, but in general I still feel that Chris Owens speaks to me and for me on all other issues. I am not as cynical about Yassky's motives as some, including Chris, are, but I agree that Yassky's endorsement of Sampson for Brooklyn DA, despite Sampson being black, was a bizarre and to date unexplained move where Yassky allied himself with the machine and endorsed the least qualified candidate.
I really wish Ben had asked a wider range of questions. He is one of the people who is milking the race controversy too much. Otherwise the interview was good, but come on. There is more to this race than, well, race. There were few questions asked about NATIONAL issues, though Chris does turn some of the questions to broader issues.
Anyway, for those handful of readers who aren't already set on who to vote for, you can hear Chris Owens speak by clicking on the link above. And for those who have already decided, let's at least avoid the same over used comments.
