The rehabilitation of Elliot Spitzer ... Richard Nixon style

The title of Newsweek's cover story -- "The Confessions of Elliot Spitzer" -- is a little misleading in that there is nothing resembling a confession by Elliot Spitzer to be found in it  ... but it's a fascinating read nonetheless.

It should have been titled "The rehabilitation of Elliot Spitzer" because it's so clear that he's finally embarking on a Nixonian-style makeover -- something we all knew was eventually going to happen.  My only surprise: that it took this long, a full two years after his downfall. 

Elliot is semi-ubiqitous these days:  He has a column in Slate, he's penned some opinion pieces here and there, and he's even dipped his big toe back into the TV circuit, doing interviews with the Today Show and Morning Joe.

The real question is:  to what end?  He claims he's not gearing up for another run for office -- possibly Attorney General or Mayor of New York in 2013 -- but you'd be a fool to think otherwise.  There's something addictive about public office that leaves these guys craving more, even after such a spectacular fall as Spitzer's.  Do I think it's likely that he'd run again, or win for that matter? No.  Is it out of the realm of possibility? Definitely not.   It would certainly be interesting, which is a good enough reason for me to hope for it.
