Paterson Says Three Days, Schumer Says the Hillary Comparison Was Just ‘Hyperbole’

WASHINGTON–Even at a black tie ball where President Barack Obama and his wife danced to celebrate his historic inauguration, New York's most frustrating political parlor game continued to take center stage.

"I think we'll probably make it in about three days," he said of his announcement, adding that the person was someone who "enjoyed the inauguration today immensely." Paterson also confirmed reports that he had interviewed Byron Brown, the mayor of Buffalo and a candidate for the job, earlier that day.
