Paterson wins one……Court upholds his right to appoint a Lt. Governor………

New York State Governor David A. Paterson has just received some good news …that being a welcomed victory for the guy who has had nothing but bad news……The New York State Court of Appeals upheld his decision to appoint Rich Ravitch to the position of Lt. Governor…….the 4 to 3 decision shuts down the state republican senate members play to embarrass, and contest the democrats in general, and the governor’s power to choose a Lt. Governor , specifically…...The court case came on the heels  of State Senator Dean Skelos loss during summer , of a paper thin majority, when several democrats decided to caucus with the republicans, creating a stalemate in the states political actions, for over a month……….

While Paterson get a chance to celebrate …it isn’t gonna last long…Starting yesterday…..He will be playing peek-a-boo with his parties national leader, President Obama , who is New York for the UN, and has asked that he NOT run for his current governors spot in next falls election……..
