A Message of Support for Paterson (!) From Bill Clinton

Bill Clinton videotaped a birthday message that was played at David Paterson’s birthday party fund-raiser last night at the Mandarin Hotel, people at the event told me.
In the video, Clinton warmly praised Paterson’s work, thanked him for his support, and wished him a happy birthday, they said.
It wasn’t an official endorsement, but could be seen as a sign of support, something Paterson—who is trailing in the polls to prospective challenger Andrew Cuomo—could benefit from.
Paterson’s campaign spokeswoman said the video of Clinton would be posted online this morning.
Also at the event, Paterson sought to commiserate, humorously, with Malcolm Smith, the deposed Senate leader.
