    The idiot needs to figure out that he is unelectable.

    He was never elected to be Governor in the first place and he will not be elected now

    The President of the US has no BUSINESS telling a Governor not to run for Reelection. If Bush had done that we would STILL be hearing how he violated some right or some policy.

    well, if you saw today's NY Post AND Daily News, both demanded that he resign immediately, much less not run again.

    i'm so glad he stepped down.

    My God what has happened to New York? The Corrupt & disgraceful Democrats have destroyed that once great state at this point. Now i hear they're actually considering voting another Democrat in as Governor. Yikes! New York is quickly becoming a failed Third World State. What a shame.

    Obama is not only the President but he is the Leader of the Democratic Party. He has a right to ask someone not to run-- From his own party. :cuckoo:

    Everyone has the right to ASK. The President has no greater right -- even as the nominal leder of his Party -- than anybody else, however.

    Personally, I think Paterson is a bad joke as Governor. But as bad as he is, he's better in some ways than the next liberal Democrat Governor this State's electorate is likely to put into the State House in Albany. Son of Cuomo.

    Yeech.

    Often times, the sequel is worse than the original.
