(Newser) – Is Client No. 9 getting back into politics? Eliot Spitzer is considering a 2010 bid for his old job as New York’s attorney general, sources tell the New York Post—assuming Andrew Cuomo vacates the post to run for governor. “My record as governor was disappointing,” Spitzer reportedly told friends, “but the voters will remember my excellent two terms as attorney general.”

But you can stick a fork in the ex-guv, say some. "The whole idea of returning to Albany is preposterous. You can't go home again. He's a pariah. It wasn't just the prostitutes—there was also Troopergate," says one observer.

Is there any truth that Spitzer was taken down because he was close to (exposing/prosecuting) a lot of people in the financial world? If so, would he have made things come to light earlier? Quite honestly, who cares who he has sex with. If my doctor was found with hookers, I won't cancel my doctor's appointment.

What New Yorker would vote for a person that: a) sent people to jail for prostitution b) not going to jail himself after admitting to hiring a prostitute? But then again, DC re-elected a convicted crack head!

The arrogance of this ego-prick is unbelievable. He should accept the fact he is a lousy, lying, SOB that is a bad joke to most people. Go away Eliot and count your father's money. And why wasn't he indicted. What a crumb.
