Eliot Spitzer, New York's attorney general, who is seen by some as the scourge of Wall Street, says he has given no thought to his political future beyond standing for re-election tomorrow. If that is true, then he is the only person in New York politics who has not.
(New York Times)
New York State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer seems shy discussing his own political future -- not his 2002 re-election campaign, against a Republican candidate with a profile so low that even few Republicans can name her, but his future beyond this year, about which he is vague and uncharacteristically hesitant.
(New York Times)
The pressure is on Eliot Spitzer, the State Attorney General who is an overwhelming favorite to win re-election to a second term next month."Would I like him to become President? Of course," said his father, Bernard Spitzer. "I'd love to spend the night in the Lincoln Bedroom."And would the Attorney General himself like to be President?"I think he would," the elder Mr. Spitzer said. "It's his very nature."
In her sharpest attack yet, the Republican challenger to state Attorney General Eliot Spitzer accused him of ignoring the problem of online pedophiles in favor of headline-grabbing Wall Street scandals.
