The Clusterfark Is Big and Real

Gov. Eliot Spitzer promised early on to spend his time “breaking some china,” proclaimed himself a “steamroller” and often invoked a favorite saying: “You can’t change the world by whispering.”
So give the man credit. Rarely has state politics been more fraught with feuds and fury than in his first year in office. Two weeks ago, a special legislative session ended bitterly, with agreements brokered months ago on issues like campaign finance falling apart. And in the last week, the governor seems to have angered all political stripes by shifting his plans to offer driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants — and he may have tripped up Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential push for good measure.
