Weekly Show

Gwen and the panel discuss the scandals facing Democrats, including New York Governor David Paterson and Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY). The panel also breaks down the health care debate, the new unemployment numbers and the debate over financial reform legislation.

New York On My Mind

Gwen's Take

I don’t pretend to be an expert on the vagaries of New York politics, even though I was born there. I have enough trouble keeping up with the cabals and the vagaries of Capitol Hill and White House politics. (Rahm Emanuel, anyone?)

That said, I have been watching the apparently unraveling careers of two Empire State stalwarts - Governor David Paterson and Rep. Charles Rangel -- with special interest.
