Sure, Eliot Spitzer was known as Client No. 9 at his local whorehouse, and he’s either going to have to resign or be impeached from office, but that’s not the big story.  The big story is that David Paterson is next in line to become the governor, and he would become the state’s first black governor, as well as the state’s first legally blind governor (we all remember when Stevie Wonder lost a close election some 20 years ago).  I embrace it, although I do not live in the state. What’s the harm?  So he may accidentally sign some wrong bills, give the guy a break.  This year is all about change.
