Gov. David Paterson- "Once you go black, you don't go back."

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/12/08/new-york-gover...


New York Gov. David Paterson is getting rave reviews as one of the Gridiron Dinner speakers over the weekend.

The Gridiron dinner is an off-the-record dinner with journos and pols who sing songs, do skits and make fun of each other in the great wide open.

Paterson's speech was certainly no exception. Even though he became governor of New York in quite a surprising fashion, it's not the governor title that he wants, apparently. Paterson's real goal, he said, is to follow in Barack Obama's footsteps and be President of the United States, because: "Once you go black, you don't go back."

4. Yeah, yeah, I heard all that
when I was going through my "dating Philadelphia police detectives at the Ebony Lounge" while a student at Temple University in Philadelphia.

I got news for Dave: Yes, you do.
