The Spitzer story sucks, but every suck has its silver tongue. Or something.
Let's say the good/bad governor of New York resigns today, as some are saying. [Spitzer will speak at 11:30 a.m.] If that's true, then some pretty exciting history is going to be made.
Lt. Governor David Paterson will become the first African-American governor of New York state in history. He'll also be just the fourth black governor ever in the U.S.
On top of that, he will be the first legally blind governor in history.
Once again, congratulations to David Paterson. (Let's hope he's not Client #8.)
