While the rest of America was confuddled by “binders of women” and
the heated presidential debate on Tuesday, Hofstra University was
swarmed by political gurus of all stripes. The floor of spin alley,
a small basketball court-sized zone of self-interested
interpretation, was swarmed with former and current New York
politicos. It should be noted that only Rep. Steve Israel was
spotted, very briefly, among the Queens delegation.
