One more thought on the Spitzer fiasco, and then I'm probably done.
While I think it's impossible for him to continue as governor and have any hope of effectiveness, there is life after elected office. Especially in Albany.
Take this quote from the Albany Times-Union, for example:
Karben should know that you always get second chances in Albany.
Ryan Karben, a former Democratic assemblyman from Rockland County, said the governor could get past the scandal. Karben, a lobbyist on Spitzer's finance committee, said: "This is a very smart, extrordinarily capable man with tremendous resilience. If he's determined this is a battle he wants to fight, I think he's got a lot of fight in him."
And third chances.
