Spitzer to Run for AG?

Here will be an excellent test of New Yorkers’ ability to forgive and forget: According to the New York Post, former governor Eliot Spitzer is preparing to run for State Attorney General in 2010, telling friends “My record as governor was disappointing, but the voters will remember my excellent two terms as attorney general.” It is expected that the current State Attorney General, Andrew Cuomo, will run for governor. One observer, however, isn’t keen on Spitzer's plan: “The whole idea of returning to Albany is preposterous. You can't go home again. He's a pariah. It wasn't just the prostitutes -- there was also Troopergate.”
