Almost Great

Last night at the Roxy in Manhattan, Hillary Clinton said the Democrats poised to sweep into Albany were “great.” Well, almost all of them.

I want to make sure we help elect more Democrats. We’re going to have a great new governor and lieutenant governor: Eliot Spitzer and David Paterson. We’re going to have a great new attorney general: Andrew Cuomo and we’re going to re-elect our comptroller Alan Hevesi.

This not-so-great show of support came hours after the Albany District Attorney said he is investigating Hevesi’s chauffeurgate scandal.
