Una Clarke Gets Shakespearean on Spitzer

Here’s Una Clarke, a former City Council woman from Brooklyn and permanent fixture in the city’s political landscape, discussing the resolution of Eliot Spitzer’s proposal to allow undocumented residents to obtain driver’s licenses.

“Cowards die many times before their death. Shakespeare says that,” Clarke told me. She went on to say, “If you believe in something, you take it to the end.”

Extra credit question: If Spitzer is Julius Ceasar, who’s his Brutus?
