(I WOULD take this opportunity to say “Run Rudy, Run!” or even invite Sarah to move to NY, but I don’t want any flaming Viking Kitties thrown at me, so I won’t.)
I think Paterson is just talking out his butt. Am I correct in saying that if the dems don’t want him to run, he doesn’t have a chance of being on the ballot, unless he wants to use his own money?
If the dem primary is between a black candidate and a white one, it is not necessarily a sure thing that the black guy would lose, even if the party honchos opposed him. It might also result in annoying the crucial black constituency.
Essentially, it would be popcorn time.
