Clinton: My thoughts are with Spitzer

OLD FORGE, Pennsylvania (CNN) - Sen. Hillary Clinton said she had no comment on New York Governor Eliot Spitzer's possible involvement in a prostitution ring.

"I obviously am sending my best wishes and thoughts to the governor and to his family," she told reporters after visiting with reporters in a local pizza parlor.

When asked whether Gov. Spitzer could survive politically she said "let's wait and see what comes out of the next few days. Right now I don't have any comment. I think it's appropriate to wish his family well and see how things develop."

– CNN Senior Political Producer Sasha Johnson

    Too bad Obama has no closet issues, just politcal rhetoric and speculation spread by Clinton and her supporters. If there was anything concrete on Obama the Clintons would have hammered it home months ago. They can't find anything so they try to make stuff up hoping people like you will spread the rumors for them. Do your research before you mouth off!

    WHAT? NO DENOUNCE? NO REJECT?

    Is she planning to support Silda Spitzer in a future political career based on her experience as first lady?

    This shouldn't be turned into a witch hunt – come on, a man did something very wrong and has hurt his family very bad. I can not even begin to imagine what that family is going through – and I can't even imagine what Hillary & Chelsea went through back in the 90's. Oh yes, or what any other family has gone through when they had a spouse cheat on them! Give everyone a break people and stop pretending you are the virgins of all virgins and never committed a sin. Let this family get through this their way and STOP RETRASHING OLD TRASH!

    To the person who said "what's the big deal" Last I checked prostitution is illegal., and he "allegedly" became involved in something that he's suppose to be fighting against. Duh. Do the research, must have access to a computer, use it wisely, instead of surfing porn sites. LOL

    If you don't stand for something, You'll fall for anything!

    This is why she will not show us her tax returns!!!! She does not want us to see Bill's entertainment deductions for "fun with #9, #16, #3 and friends at the Ranch."

    For some strange reason this reminds me of Elmer Gantry. ...and no, I don't have a whole lot of sympathy for the Governor himself. Like they say, he's made his own bed.
