Eliot Spitzer on YouTube

A YouTube search for "Eliot Spitzer" reveals several videos, many added in the past 24 hours.

The Post's Keith Richburg reports today that "his popularity quickly waned as he became enmeshed in scandals and political missteps, including allegations that his staff used New York state troopers to collect potentially damaging political information against his chief rival in Albany, Joseph L. Bruno, the state Republican leader. Spitzer later apologized to Bruno."

The video below demonstrates Spitzer's well-documented combative exchanges with opponents. In this case, it's reporters quizzing him in late October 2007 about the state trooper scandal:

Here's an ad Spitzer ran during his successful 2006 for New York Governor highlighting his education reform proposals:

Spitzer has campaigned hard for New York Senate Democrats, in hopes of wrestling control from New York Republicans, thus giving him Democratic majorities in both chambers. Here he appears in an ad for State Senate candidate Andrea Stewart-Cousins (D), who defeated incumbent GOP State Sen. Nicholas A. Spanos last November in a close race:

Finally, for a comedic take on the scandal, here's David Letterman's Monday night Top Ten List: Top Ten Eliot Spitzer Excuses:

you have to feel sorry for spitzer
he had every angle covered in his ambition
to become president of the united states of america
now all this lies in ruins
and why?
he didnt stumble over a political move
he stumbled over something he would have least suspected of being ever capable of bringing him down
his sexdrive beat him
despite his formidable intellect he was politically de-capitated by having sex with a prostitute in any case by an action
commandeered by the instictual apparatus of his body instead of his intellect which he probably always thought as being the prime mover of things
one can imagine his present feelings when he considers that of all the traps he had guarded himself against on his long road to the presidency in the end it was his instincts which defeated him
you have to pity him for that
after such towering ambition cast low by ones sexual appetite

privately it might be the moment for spitzers re-birth now that he has a reason to look steady into his soul which one suspects he may find in need of discovery and subsequent recognition

whatever he does
i pity him in his present agony
