Schumer to push for New York

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

Finally, a little life from the New York side. New York's Democratic politicians have been mostly quiet about New York's bid to host the 2008 Democratic Convention. Not any more:

[New York Senator] Chuck [Schumer] told the News at an editorial board meeting earlier this week that that's changing, however, and that he's prepared to do some of the heavy lifting.

"I am going to make a push" to get the convention, he said.
Schumer has never been more powerful in the Democratic party than he is today, thanks to his leadership in gaining the Senate for the Democrats. This is the kind of political power New York will need to turn around the conventional wisdom that Denver has this thing sewn up.
