Not That Surprising

A big part of New York "progressivism" consisting of opposition to the corrupt local party establishment and entrenched influence in Albany, it's not really all that surprising that the DNC has chosen to credential a more accommodating group of Democratic bloggers for the convention. Endorsing another primary candidate over the state's junior US Senator, not exactly going to curry favor with the proverbial powers that be.

Which isn't to knock The Daily Gotham crew, none of whom I imagine would be particularly insulted were they to be described as being more dedicated to liberal and progressive principles than to the political goals of the Democratic Party per se. But the party itself's greater interest in the latter is hardly a shock.

(Not familiar with the political environment in Jersey, but I would imagine it's much the same there.)
