Jonathan Alter wrote on Newsweek.com Some Democrats terrified that their bloody primary campaign will doom them in November are floating a consolation prize for Hillary Clinton: governor of New York.
Isn't it bad enough having her as a senator, why would you want the witch as a Governor?The travails of New York Gov. David Paterson
I would be surprised if Paterson resigns. He was not the "Sheriff of Wall Street" prosecuting people for what he was doing, and he is a Democrat, and they get by with many things Republicans could not.have opened up a new potential career path for Clinton, according to well-informed Democratic Party insiders who refused to allow their names to be used when discussing contingencies. They want her to consider the option if she concludes after the April 22 Pennsylvania primary that she cannot overtake Barack Obama for the party's presidential nomination. Hillary Clinton, while fully committed to continuing her presidential campaign, was said to be open to discussing the idea, while Bill Clinton rejected it out of hand.
Hillary will soon reject it out of hand as well.With former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani now reported by the New York Post to be weighing a race for governor, voters could see a Clinton-Giuliani matchup after all.
