Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way

ServiceNation Live Blog: Paterson

Gov. David Paterson kicks things off from the political standpoint and is received warmly, especially with the news that he will elevate to a Cabinet level the position for national and community service.

Touches upon the Roosevelts, FDNY 9/11 rescuers and an old lady who helped him find his way around uptown one afternoon.

Says nice things about McCain, too, despite saying (at the DNC) a few weeks ago, "If John McCain is the answer, then the question is ridiculous. "
