NY-29th: Interesting segment from The News Hour

Here's something that ran a few weeks ago on PBS concerning the Mass/Kuhl race. It's a good piece. Both candidates come across well.

However, about 9 minutes in, they discuss a whisper campaign attacking Massa for only making rank of Commander after being in the service for 24 years. They even manage to a get one attendee of the Cheney fundraiser to comment candidly on it. It's worth watching for that.

See Massa took a medical leave at one point and would have likely achieved a higher rank if it wasn't for that. Instead, he had a higher priority: he was beating a terminal diagnosis of cancer.
