commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Eliot Spitzer continues his march back into the spotlight…..

The Dog pointed out here a week ago that Eliot Spitzer is too young to just pack his bags and sit on the sideline of political life…..

I happy to say I get a bone…..

Eliot Spitzer is apparently conducting an extended rollout after his mess-up …..

Alex Gibney’s “Untitled Eliot Spitzer Film” is rolling out next week and Spitzer may be at the opening to plea mea cupla..and them campaign on for some future spot…….

The man is 50 , smart, driven, and sorry for his stupidity….

We’ll follow this one….

He’s going places folks….

You can bet on that……

Spitzer’s Comeback Continues This Weekend

Alex Gibney’s “Untitled Eliot Spitzer Film” will be unveiled at this weekend’s Tribeca Film Festival and rumor has it that former governor will attend the screening, the New York Daily News reports.

The film is so highly anticipated the Oscar-winning director is actually unveiling it before it’s finished.

Politico: “The comeback is audacious, and the strategy brazen: Spitzer skipped the public remorse, the charity-work penance. Instead, he is using a sympathetic new biography and the film to try to close the book on his recent past and pivot to what he now openly admits to hoping will be a second career in public life.”

Friends say Spitzer is counting on his public embrace of the book and the documentary “to serve as the last word on the sex scandal that ended his career and as proof that he has nothing left to hide.”

From Politico…..

His friends say that Spitzer is counting on his public embrace of the book and the documentary by Alex Gibney — which is expected to be sympathetic but serious and critical enough to be credible — to serve as the last word on the sex scandal that ended his career and as proof that he has nothing left to hide.

The book and movie “are a great steppingstone,” said Spitzer’s friend and former adman, Jimmy Siegel. “I think he will run for something in a year or two.”

Siegel’s view — reflected, on balance, in an interview for Peter Elkind’s new biography of Spitzer, “Rough Justice” — is this:

“On one hand, he’s the best attorney general [New York state has] ever had — a guy who transformed the office in a very proactive way and went after Wall Street when no one else ever had or would have — and turned out to be 100 percent right. On the other hand, he paid for sex. The ledger is much more on the positive side.”

That is, friends say, also Spitzer’s view, though the former governor didn’t respond to questions about the book. He did, however, talk about the matter with Elkind in late March.

  1. Spitzer is still done politically because New Yorkers will never allow him in statewide office ever again and I think the deadline to file for statewide offices is coming up real soon there dude.

  3. I think you mean against Gillibrand in 2012, who will pull the old trickster play and go hardcore conservative after she wins the November special election this year.

    Old habits do die hard.
