Interview: New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver

WNBC.COM News Forum: Sheldon Silver

"Come January 1st, there will be a new sheriff in town. Or at least a new governor in Albany. Eliot Spitzer, elected in a history landslide, says he will take his mandate and use it to change the culture of the capital. But can he? Most of the big decisions take three ayes; one from the governor, one from Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno, and one from Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver. The last 12 years, as Republican George Pataki has occupied the governor's office, Silver has been the most powerful Democrat in Albany. Come January 1st, that reign will end. Spitzer will be the top Democratic dog, and Silver, will he be combative? Cooperative? Conciliatory? Only Sheldon Silver knows."

This is a transcript of a tv interview with Silver.....make the time to read this...great it here andy
