Upper East Side, 65th Street Between Madison and Fifth Avenues

This looks more like Venice than New York, partly because the wide angle lens I'm using here exaggerates the street and makes it look more like a plaza than a side street. Reality is elusive.

In other news, I just have to shout it out that this year I am proud to be a Democrat again. It was tough going there for the past few years, but now we Democrats have changed the political landscape. All you women upset about Hillary's stolen opportunity, just start thinking about the next woman candidate because Hillary has proved that a woman can be tough and get lotsa votes.

But now the most important thing is to elect Obama. Yeah!

See map.

Yeah, Obama, is right (although he wasn't my first choice, Edwards was).

I'm happy for you in regard to Obama, but it's pure naivety thinking that any woman in the next 20 years will be reaching Hillary's political status.

The thing that I love about politics is that the most unexpected things can and do happen. Four years ago if I'd told you a black man could be the party's nominee, how naive would you have thought me then? BTW, I would have agreed with you.

C'mon, we have great women in this country and they may not have Hillary's status, but they may not need it. Have some faith in women!
