It’s a shame that Eliot Spitzer so thoroughly embarrassed himself a while back. The guy really is one of the few people who can speak forcefully and knowledgeably about what went wrong in the financial markets and what is needed to fix them. This is an excerpt from an extended interview with Spitzer from a few days ago – the whole thing is available here.
Can Spitzer be rehabilitated to the point where he can serve in public office again? Or is he forever limited to commenting from the sidelines? I have a feeling it’s the latter, but even then, he’s a serious voice who should have a wider audience.
