Democrats With An Agenda
Corzine has declared he wants to be the next governor. OK, but what does Corzine really want?
Sure he wants to sit in the governor’s office, at least temporarily, and concoct some semblance of a track record and policy notions. But is that all?
Nope! Corzine is not interested in being governor for too long because he has his sights set on making a run for the White House in 2008. That’s right! Corzine wants to be governor, but only to pad his resume so he can take a shot at the top spot. Corzine wants to be Gov. Corzine so he can try to become President Corzine.
And while we’re talking about Democrats with an agenda, did you catch the arrogant antics of Assembly Democratic Leader Joe Roberts last week? He told a panel of lawmakers that anyone who disagreed with his ideas about a potential property tax convention should just "go home."
Obviously there is no room for dissension in Roberts’ world of politics. This is a guy who is working the backrooms to be the next Assembly Speaker after the guy who is currently warming that seat decides to step down in the not-too-distant future.
