Perhaps it's appropriate that, while Eliot Spitzer dominated the news the past few days, former Clinton administration adviser Dick Morris was making a cameo appearance in state politics.
Morris showed up in Missouri to speak on behalf of State Treasurer Sarah Steelman, a candidate for the Republican nomination for governor. From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch :
The campaign guru who helped guide the Clintons from Little Rock to the White House - before their famous falling out - was in St. Louis Monday, stumping on behalf of Steelman's bid for governor.
In an interview before the event, Morris - as he has done in several columns - extolled Steelman's policy of not investing state pension funds in companies that do business with Iran.
"Sarah's innovation in the use of that - of a nothing job like state treasurer," Morris said, "and using it to leverage all of federal policy about dealing with the preeminent international threat we have is pretty interesting."
A spokesman for Steelman's main Republican opponent, Congressman Kenny Hulsof, questioned whether an endorsement from a Clinton administration official would help in a Republican primary. I question whether the endorsement of Dick Morris would help any candidate, Democrat or Republican.
