Eliot Spitzer Won’t Rule Out Reentering Politics

NEW YORK - SEPTEMBER 16:  Former New York governor Eliot Spitzer speaks at a forum on the future of New York September 16, 2010 at the New York Public Library in New York City. The forum, which was sponsored by the Wall Street Journal, also included New York former Governor George Pataki and current governor David Paterson. Mainstream politicians in New York have been caught off guard by the controversial primary win of upstate millionaire and Tea Party endorsed Carl Paladino as the Republican party`s pick for governor.

In an interview with Al Jazeera, an affable and “relaxed” Spitzer fielded questions about his post-TV plans, now that his CNN show, In the Arena, has been canceled. Would he reconsider entering politics? “I didn’t quite answer that question.” So he wouldn’t reconsider entering politics? “I didn’t quite say that.” A month ago, 57 percent of New Yorkers polled by Marist said they wouldn’t want Spitzer to run for mayor in 2013.
