Silver-tongued on Gov

New York Daily News

Please allow me to take a few quotes from this article.........

For Albany veterans, the specter of a Democratic governor purposefully campaigning against his own party members suggested a world gone mad.
"I've never seen anything quite like it," said veteran lobbyist James Featherstonhaugh, adding, "[Spitzer] may have calculated that ... his main priorities would be better served if he can just make everyone afraid of him."
Still, given Silver's huge numerical majority in the Assembly, it's unlikely Spitzer could ever knock him from the speakership, said experts, who predicted the two men would soon realize that they need each other.
"Look, the public wants reform, and the governor needs the Legislature to pass reform measures," said consultant Hank Sheinkopf. "If they do that, they'll all be winners." and the taxpayers will be winners as well..........andy
