Blazing Lieutenant Governor might have to saddle up..(if New York spits out Spitzer)

Lost in the “ho’s over politico’s” imbroglio is the man who would be governor if New York Governor Spitzer decides to step down: David Paterson. Paterson would be the first African-American governor of New York, and possibly the first legally blind governor of any state*.

Paterson is known as an advocate for the visually impaired and is a member of The American Foundation for the Blind. Paterson graduated from Columbia University and a law degree from Hofstra.

Paterson has been considered to be a potential successor to Senator Clinton if she attains her current quest.

Paterson seems to be an impressive individual, but even if he doesn’t make it to the governor’s chair, or the Senate, at least he can still go hunting in Texas. Yep..

*After several minutes of research including a visit to the ever-reliable Wikipedia, I can’t come up with any other legally blind governors.
