Bell Curve The Law Talking Guy Raised by Republicans U.S. West
Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

Client 9

New York Governor Elliot Spitzer has been caught soliciting a high-paid prostitute. He was identified as "Client 9" in the recordings from the wiretap in the federal investigation. Spitzer held a very brief and emotional press conference today, his wife standing silently next to him, in which he admitted it and asked forgiveness.

He gave no indication he would resign, and I would bet he is still good for re-election in New York in a few years. But this surely ends any national aspirations for this formerly bright star of the Democratic party. Cross him off your VP lists.

The NY Democratic party must be demoralized after finally kicking out Pataki. This is a tough break for HRC too. She can't condemn Spitzer as easily or broadly as others can, because of Bill.

Isn't Spitzer a Clinton associate of some sort? Or is that only because they are both Democrats from New York?

A man to watch: David A. Paterson, Lieutenant Governor of New York who will take over if Spitzer resigns. He's legally blind and self-identifies as African American.

I was so disappointed to hear this today. Another hero bites the dust.
