Paterson, Drawing the Line at Harlem

One of the most amazing things about David Paterson’s rally in Harlem this weekend was, as Nick Confessore noted, the fact that Paterson had to do it in the first place.
“So, I want to know who is out there that can cut the budget that effectively and remember those who need to be protected the most,” Paterson said ten-and-a-half minutes into his speech at the National Action Network office on 135th Street. “If there is such a person, let them come forward. I will see them in 2010.”
Paterson represented Harlem in the State Senate for many years, and the event was played as a homecoming.
