Still Wondering About Alesi

For a while there we were thinking our suggestion that Sen. Jim Alesi might switch parties would go the way of our other bold predictions in the past, like David Koon running for County Executive, David Koon running for State Senate, and Hillary Clinton snatching the Democratic nomination from under the nose of Barack Obama.

Are we in danger of spoiling our (so far) perfect record of extravagantly wrong predictions? It just may be. Word from Albany is that, in the still unstable environment of the State Senate following the election, Alesi continues talks with the Democrats about switching.


Maybe an actual party switch isn't what's going to happen -- maybe more likely an Alesi vote in support of Malcolm Smith as Majority Leader, in exchange for keeping his chairmanship of the Insurance Committee, full staff, etc.
