Hillary Clinton could soon be chief executive… of New York. With Clinton’s presidential chances looking slim, party insiders are floating the idea of a gubernatorial run, Newsweek reports. And David Paterson may not stay governor for long in Clinton’s state; Eliot Spitzer’s scandal-plagued successor may even need to resign soon and spark a November election.
Hillary’s opponent, ironically, could be Rudy Giuliani, who is reportedly mulling a run for governor. Clinton is apparently open to the idea, while Bill Clinton rejects it out of hand. One campaign aide summed up the nay side: “Hillary believes, and so do I, that she'll be president this year,” he said. “It may be an alternative universe, but it's the one they (the Clintons) live in.”
