Oddo: G.O.P. Shouldn’t Overplay Spitzer Mess

Here’s Republican City Councilman Jimmy Oddos’ take on the whole Spitzer affair.

“I just think that my party needs to play this one smart and not to overplay their hand. With some prodding, I would continue to allow the governor to inflict these wounds to himself. If we overplay our hand, the public will say, ‘a pox on both your houses.’”

I asked him what he meant by “overplay” ?

“If our focus is 100 percent on this, and we forget to do policy, it’ll come back and recoil. We should be doing a nice mix of policy and substance as you help the governor self destruct,” he said.
