Over at Salon.com blogger Glenn Greenwald is on a tear today eschewing the faux "bipartisan" mantra being spouted by a group of former Senators who may back a third party run by billionaire and NYC Mayor Michael Boomberg. In an update to his evisceration of this so-called "bipartisanship" he posted a video from our very own heart throb Congressional candidate Martin Heinrich.

Well said, sir. Well said. We haven't had an election this important since 1968, and the good guys didn't win that one. Its nice to see a Democrat who isn't afraid to be one.

Great commercial. Great candidate.

Yes, and in the comment section of the Greenwald post he's getting kudos (and one donation!) for his strong stand.

I'm finding it hard to get to excited about him but cannot pin down why. Maybe it's just a long history of being disappointed by candidates that held a lot of progressive promise but ended up a disappointment. That's not fair to him if that's really the root of my trouble, but for the life of me, I can't think of much he has done that is truly remarkable.

I also think that whoever gets this slot will be a target for a lot of GOP bullshit, and wonder if he is up for the fight. I just don't remember him fighting for much on the council as he seems to function more as a consensus type willing to let others take the lead and combat the strife. Also, since he has announced, I wonder if perhaps he is trying to please too many masters.

I certainly see him as holding more promise than any of the other candidates, I just want to get a better sense of what it takes for him to remove the gloves, and how effective his punches are once he does. Maybe a better question is when has he had his ass kicked, and what did he do about it?

My "nice" was to the video, not to take away anything from your comment Scott. We just must of posted at the same time.

As someone who wants to see a Dem in the White House next January, I'm tempted to start a DCF for Bloomberg Running for President group (Disclaimer: If such group is ever made, it will not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of the creators or moderators of this website). I don't see how a Bloomberg candidacy could do anything but help Dem presidential nominee win.

And I also agree that "bipartisanship" in the last 8 or 9 years has lead to good Democrats compromising some fairly basic reasons why I vote D in the first place. This is exactly why I'm afraid of Obama presidency. The “conservative” establishment in DC isn’t going to start playing nice just because he is.... But I digress.

Great, thoughtful and touching ad Mr. Heinrich. He's someone I'm very confident won't abandon the reasons I'm going to vote for him in the first place when we elect him to be our Congressmen.

I like it, a pretty straightforward take on an important issue.

The computers in the background have me puzzled. Is it "Martin Heinrich, he understand technology" or "Martin Heinrich, he's campaigning from a call center"?
