The New York Times passes on the rumor that Obama has asked New York Governor David Patterson to withdraw from the New York Governor's Race.
President Obama has sent a request to Gov. David A. Paterson that he withdraw from the New York governor’s race, fearing that Mr. Paterson cannot recover from his dismal political standing, according to two senior administration officials and a New York Democratic operative with direct knowledge of the situation.That sounds racist to me. Why? David Patterson is Black.
The decision to ask Mr. Paterson to step aside was proposed by political advisers to Mr. Obama, but approved by the president himself, one of the administration officials said.
