If you go back to the early 1800s...you discover there are two sets of political figures in NY state. There is the New York City crowd who can run their own city...but the Albany crowd is a totally different crowd, and will not listen to any political figure from the mayor down to the city council.

Teddy Roosevelt discovered this as a state legislature guy in the 1880s. Getting things done at the state level.....usually involves some element of corruption, or getting the central characters to agree to some minor part of your suggested scheme. It’s safe to say....at the state level....nothing of a drastic nature is ever passed.

Thanks. I've had that impression, observing from a distance.
