After the Post's report that Eliot Spitzer allegedly is considering running for State Comptroller in 2010, the Observer's Steve Kornacki ponders the possibility: "Let's suppose he is. His chances of winning would be small and further embarrassment - for himself and for his family - would be almost certain, but as one elected official put it on Thursday, 'The guy's nuts, so who knows?' Still, the broad consensus among political insiders is that the filing deadline will come and go next year with Spitzer still on the political sidelines." And the Post follows up its story—a Democratic insider calls the idea "absurd."
