I've got a simple request for Jeff Miller:
In or out.
Professor Miller, who is a genuinely nice guy, has been suggesting for quite some time now that he will make an announcement about whether he will run for the Democratic nomination to defeat Sherwood Boehlert in the general election in the 24th District this fall.
Miller ran and lost against Boehlert in the 2004 election.
In a newspaper article on the 7th of January, Jeff Miller said that he would make an announcement in about a week.
That was thirteen days ago - and still no word from Miller.
Listen, Jeff, I sympathize with the difficulty of this decision, but if you can't make up your mind, then the default decision ought to be not to run. After all, there are at least three other Democrats running for the nomination. You've had your shot. If you can't know for sure whether to run after over a year of consideration, then the answer is clear: You're not prepared.
Take it easy on yourself, Jeff. Run with everything that you've got, and start today, or stay at home with your lovely family and lend your support to a more organized Democrat.
