- An Honest Politician [✜]
I suppose one of the benefits of being appointed rather than elected is that you can be a lot more honest about stuff. No parsing, no caveats about not inhaling, just an honest answer.
Presumably three years from now when it comes time for reelection, no one will care about this. We will judge whether or not David Paterson has been a good governor. Not whether something he did 25 years ago showed "good judgement".
