Steadfast Spitzer?

Eliot Spitzer has given some indication in recent comments that he’s thinking about scrapping his driver’s license plan, and Liz and others have noted that there’s squabbling within the administration about whether to do so. Some critics of the driver’s license plan are also wondering whether Spitzer will back away from his support of the federal REAL ID Act, which almost every Democratic member of congress from New York voted against.

But in an email exchange earlier today, an administration official suggested to me that too much had been read into the governor’s comments and that he’s sticking to his plan.

How much longer, do we think?
