divine intervention

President Obama has sent a request to Gov. David A. Paterson that he withdraw from the New York governor’s race, fearing that Mr. Paterson cannot recover from his dismal political standing, according to two senior administration officials and a New York Democratic operative with direct knowledge of the situation.
The Sunday NYT article goes on to recount how unprecedented such an intervention is, but how essential -- and precarious -- the Obama White House considers the President's Congressional support. The President's aides fear that Paterson will drag down the Democratic line on Election Day.

The man is toxic.
