Paterson Explains Obama

Here are David Paterson’s comments yesterday about Obama getting involved in the governor’s race here because of his troubles in Washington.

Jimmy and I have a story on it this morning, but I also posted Paterson’s remarks yesterday. They got noticed by Ben Smith, and it’s been sitting on Matt Drudge’s site since yesterday afternoon under the banner headline “NY Gov Blames President for Woes.”

Not unusually, I think, it’s far from clear that that’s what Paterson was actually trying to do.
