Humility Has To Be More Than Just A Talking Point link
Our guest blogger is New York State Gov. Eliot Spitzer. [ lmao - konservo]
– First, it is my core belief that without passion and conviction in politics we are doomed to fail.
– And second, there are serious risks that occur when those same qualities – passion and conviction – are not tempered by humility. Whether it is foreign policy abroad or domestic affairs here in New York, I believe that how we as political leaders manage these risks will ultimately determine our success.
Hubris has been a major fundamental flaw behind the Bush Administration’s failed foreign policy.

Spitzer linked to prostitution ring. link
New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer (D) “informed his most senior administration officials that he had been involved in a prostitution ring.” Spitzer “abruptly canceled his scheduled public events for the day” and “is set to make an announcement about 2:15 this afternoon at his Manhattan office.”
UPDATE: Fox News is reporting that sources say Spitzer is “expected to resign.”
UPDATE II: In his public statement, Spitzer apologized to the public and his family but did not resign.
UPDATE III: TNR notes that Spitzer once prosecuted prostitution rings.
