Eliot Spitzer

Yesterday I put up on the blog a conversation Charlie Rose had with Elizabeth Warren, Naomi Klein and William Greider. They discussed the economic mess. Of course one would expect their perspective. Surprisingly Eliot Spitzer has the exact same perspective. Both conversations mention Paul Krugman and Stieglitz as economic wizards and are those that "get it." He goes after politicians and the Obama administration who are propping up the same old system.

I have followed Eliot Spitzer's entry back into the public fold. His voice during this time is needed, of course him as a public figure would have been much better. But, we all know his words in the financial crisis have tremendous credibility and that is why he has a platform.

He is also, in my opinion sincerely apologetic and forthright as to his transgressions as you can see from the second video. And I have to say Rachel Maddow goes where no one has gone before asking him questions about the personal to the political. That appears in the second segment. Spitzer should have never been a politician. He should have made his life going after these fuckers who are starving our economy.

When Governor David Paterson fired the head of the New York Commission on Public Integrity because of the agency's willful attempt to leak information and derail the Spitzer/Troopergate investigation, he replaced him with... a stooge of Eliot Spitzer.
