Spitzer Withholds Support for Fair Share

As the NY Post is reporting today, and it's a sure sign that Eliot Spitzer feels his poll position is comfortable indeed, the Democratic candidate for governor has split with his party on the so-called Wal-Mart health care bill. Spitzer believes that "Fair Share" is not the kind of comprehensive health care reform that he feels New York State needs.

Knowing Spitzer and watching his demonstration of political independence over the past few years we'd be shocked if this split is viewed will be viewed as an anomaly when the dust settles on Eliot's career. If we were a status quo Democrats we'd be just a little bit worried with Mr. Spitzer as governor, Since we don't fit into that category you can describe us as quite sanguine about a Spitzer governorship.
