Eileen Dugan [the late Assemblywoman from Carroll Gardens], because of her strength of how she lived and her common sense. She was really old-school, but a radical, too. Before she was in the Assembly, there were no women’s bathrooms off the [legislative] chamber. She had to fight tooth and nail to get that.
John Heyer

Barack Obama is pretty dazzling but he sets the bar way too high. I’m drawing a blank here. Sonny Bono? I don’t know.”
Brad Lander

Howard Dean. I was against the war [in Iraq] from before the beginning, and he was a guy who was right and early, [too]. It took a while for public opinion to come around to him. He took a bold stand that was unpopular at the time.”
Gary Reilly

Al Gore has dazzled me with his breadth of knowledge.
Josh Skaller

Bobby Kennedy. I loved that he fought for the underprivileged and the middle class. He fought for people that needed government to help them.
Bob Zuckerman

It’s showtime!
