Spitzer's Idol

Is this part of Eliot Spitzer’s plan to go national?

From a Washington Post report on the White House Correspondent’s Dinner:

Sanjaya Malakar, the shy, slender, 17-year-old “American Idol” reject, was at his table when a tall, middle-aged man stopped by to ask for an autograph. The boy’s hosts, from People magazine, tried to shoo him away.

“We are trying to let him eat,” they explained.

The man protested: “But I’m the governor of New York.”

And so Eliot Spitzer got his autograph. It was that kind of night. It always is.
