commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Eliot Spitzer will try working for CNN….Not the voters of the State of New York…..

Eliot Spitzer, former New York Governor

We reported that maybe the ex-Attorney General and ex-Governor might be planning a political come back…..

But…….

First there is this from Politicalwire……

It turns out former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer (D) made a good choice by staying on the sidelines this year and not attempting a political comeback.

A new Marist Poll finds that nearly two-thirds of registered New York State voters — 66% — do not want him to run for statewide office this year while just 28% want him to throw his hat into the political ring.

Said pollster Lee Miringoff: “Eliot Spitzer’s attempt to reconnect with New York voters is not paying off in the short-run. He has become more visible lately but not more electable.”

Then this from PolitcsDaily.…….Which makes sense after the Politicalwire thing…..

Eliot Spitzer, the disgraced former governor of New York, is on the comeback trail, but his re-emergence isn’t about running for public office. Rather, Spitzer has surfaced as a cable news political pundit.

The New York Times reports that Spitzer has held informal conversations with CNN about becoming a regular contributor to the news channel. Anything but shy, he is already a budding political analyst who has made frequent appearances on rival MSNBC, even filling in as an anchor. CNN has an anchor spot open weeknights at 8, but there is no indication that Spitzer is under consideration for that position, the Times said.

  2. He’s done a great job on Ratigan a few times – his interviews are brilliant.
    But is this a smart move?

    Can he do cable a few years – and then go back to politics again?
    I just don’t see a guy like that settling for punditry in the long haul…
