Corzine doesn’t really want to “help” people - he needs to feed his ego, to self actualize. He got the boot from his Wall Street job and now needs to prove he’s still a player. And so he pretends he left Wall Street to pursue other interests – public service.
Not content with being “just a Senator” he wants us to believe his background and experience are really more in line with running the show as Governor of New Jersey. That he can do more for “the people” in a CEO type roll. Does anyone really think he will be content as Governor? Clearly he is trying to pad his resume so that he can apply for his dream job – President of the United States.
Corzine has been a poor Senator, didn’t do such a bang up job as Chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and we shudder to think how much worse things might become under a Governor Corzine. But a President Corzine – maybe his dream, it’s our nightmare.
We are not alone in our assessment, Patrick Ruffini wonders if Jon Corzine's decision to run for Governor of New Jersey is really a set-up for a Presidential run in '08.
