‘Luv’ Gov. Paterson Pushes Party Unity

leave a comment »

DENVER–At the final breakfast for the New York delegation, Gov. David Paterson pushed for party unity while recognizing the historical gravity of the fight by the most fervent Clinton supporters to get her on the ticket.

He asked how African-Americans would have reacted if they had fought so hard and to not get on the ticket.

Also flashing his trademark humor, he began his talk by saying he couldn’t see the “We Luv Our Gov” signs held by the delegates and guests.

Some women shouted, “We love you David!” to which he responded, “My past is coming back to haunt me,” poking fun at his admitted affairs during the 1970s.
