    It still baffles me that prostitution is illegal to begin with, but yeah: If you're going to crusade against it, don't participate in it.

    If Spitzer resigns, New York Lt. Gov. David A Paterson would become New York's first Black governor.

    Will this little mishap affect Spitzer's superdelegate status?

    Will everyone else in New York state who is also linked to a prostitution ring receive a get out of jail free card?

    A special prosecutor ought to get involved, but I don't think he'll get so much as a slap on the wrist.

    Ha - ha - ha! He gets what he deserves. Mr. Holier Than Thou! It wouldn't phase me in the least if it weren't for the fact that he has tried to force his sense of morality on others since he was DA. It's even more amusing (or sad) that he spent umpteen million dollars in a probe to find dirt on one of the state senators - and in the end found nothing. Maybe he should have looked in the mirror. Or....maybe that is why he figures everyone else has skeletons in their closets .

    I knew those Craigslist ads were a set-up.

    What an arrogant jerk. I feel sorry for his three teenage daughters though. Can you imagine going to school with this kind of news about your father everywhere?

    Well look at it this way, if Hillary Clinton is elected as our next president, no doubt Spitzer will get pardoned...in either four or eight years depending on if Clinton is re-elected or not. For him, she'd better win.

    Regarding being linked to a prostitution ring, does that mean anyone soliciting in prostitution is part of the ring? Does that mean recreational drug users are part of the bigger drug cartels? Where is that line of distinction between being a client and being the pimp?

    I hope it will bring forth the issue of having superdelegates in the first place.

    Why is that their vote count as 1 whole, while the others have to decide a portion of delegates allocated to each state should be granted toward the nominees, as if my 1 vote equal 1/1000?

    I read somewhere (probably speculation, but interesting nonetheless) that Spitzer's knowledge of criminal enterprises via his NY State Attorney General position would implicate him as being completely aware of the high probability that his prostitution payments were funding various criminal activities not limited to the act of prostitution.

    But he probably worked out a deal where his speedy resignation would shield him from prosecution.

    Or maybe he was just a clueless AG? Either way he's screwed. Deep up to his neck in criminal enterprises or too stupid to do his job.

    Oh he's a Democrat, I forgot only Republicans can get into trouble so he's gotta be safe...just like Bill, just like Ted...hmmm...and just like Hillary for not giving Bill the boot the first time he got caught with his pants down (literally).

    Since he has resigned, he is no longer a superdelegate.

    you're kidding, right? clinton was impeached basically bcs he lied about the whereabouts of a cigar (yes, i know i'm being overly simplistic for dramatic purposes).

    what consequences does 43 suffer for misleading the american public, spying indiscriminately upon them, and maiming habeas corpus? whither is his trouble? hey, just on 03/05/08, he was "tapdanc(ing) the day away" (bush's own words) while waiting for mccain (also known as wannabe bush III).

    that said, i hope spitzer swallows the hard fist of justice he deserves. *snarksnark*

    you're too easy and you're also being insultingly dismissive, in that sorta not really gentlemany way you do. regardless, i won't argue with someone inebriated.

    just an observation: it appeared to me that if i had turned off the sound while listening to the guy announce his upcoming resignation, i'd never know he was talking about resigning in shame. the visual cues were absent at least to my eyes....

    i have no sympathy for him but a lot for his wife and kids...

    No...I'm being smart. First rule of engagement...never argue with a woman because no matter what happens, the guy loses So when it comes to that I end it with, "Whatever's" and go to sleep.

    I think it was Letterman who said the other night " the difference between republicans and democrats is that democrats do it in four star hotels and republicans do it in public bathrooms" - or something to that effect......

    Remember when the Congressional Republicans were hot on the trail of Bill Clinton to the point of actually pushing through the Articles of Impeachment?

    A number of these moralists were later exposed of not only engaging in affairs of their own, but one actually fathered out-of-wedlock children as a result of his dalliance.

    Then, again, Senator Strom Thurmond's family has acknowledged the Black-American branch of their family tree. So much for Thurmond's "purity" argument.
