While we’re waiting for the substantive news of the morning — the imminent unveiling of Eliot Spitzer’s tax plan at the New York Conference of Mayors and Municipal Officers in Saratoga Springs — a diversionary campaign update:
Isac just phoned in to say that “some Suozzi person” called and asked him whether he’d be voting for Tom Suozzi or Eliot Spitzer.
Isac responded that it wasn’t even a question, since Suozzi isn’t on the ballot yet.
The caller, apparently undeterred, pressed on and asked Isac to indicate whether he’d vote for Suozzi if the Nassau executive were, in fact, on the ballot.
“I told him,” Isac said, “he’s wasting his time.”
