CD 6 polls

Over the next four weeks until primary day MMM will conduct online polls designed to give readers the opportunity to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the two candidates vying for the nomination to take on Congressman Frank Pallone in the general election.

The first question, "Which candidate would perform best in a debate with Frank Pallone?" is posted in the sidebar. This poll closes tomorrow night at 11. Please vote and make your arguments in the comments.

Diane Gooch would be the best debater because she represents the American Dream.

She grew up middle class in Queens.

Her father lost his job because of Jimmy Carter.

Her mother died.

The Money Store lent her and her husband the money to start a company and because of Ronald Reagan the company employs 1776 people.

1776 is the year of the declaration of founding fathers.

She lives in Rumson and owns a newspaper.

She will make the schools in Asbury Park and Plainfield safe.

She wears really cool glasses and nice clothes.

Before a debate, have you ever listened her try to read a prepared speech, at least?

Either you're joking or that is some really lame sarcasm.

Is this a serious question? Who would be a better in a debate with Pallone?

I'm pretty confident that even Diane Gooch would vote for Anna Little in this poll.

That's not even close.

Anonymous, what is this propagandic dribble you are spouting regarding Gooch? So the fact she owns a newspaper (oops, didn't her husband buy that?)lives in Rumson (oops, didn't her husband buy that?)makes her qualified? Have you heard her speak? I have, several times. I was not impressed. As a matter of fact I felt bad for her, she seemed uncomforatable. Then, her glasses and clothes? (oops, I didn't realize this was a paegent, I thought it was a congressional primary)

Here is the 800 lb gorilla in the room. Mr. Gooch has a wall street business in derivates, Pallone will shred her entire campaign over that. Also, the 800 lb gorilla twin, Mr. Gooch is a fairly heavy Democratic contributor, including Mr. Pallone himself. Does anyone think that won't be used against her? Constantly? It's Little, or lose.

You don't really believe that stuff do you?

9:02:.. sounds like a nice spin, but reality bites this year, and she can't/won't be able to get past her husband's financial successes, they are working against, not for, her.. additionally, it is very hard to pretend you've always been around and helping when the exact opposite is true, and the ones who are involved and care know it..again, no one loses when on "the line," at least, so far!.. we'll see if, in fact, the myth can perpetuate into the nod, soon enough...
