Yahoo News: Pataki Says He Won't Run for Re-Election:

ALBANY, N.Y. - Republican Gov. George Pataki said Wednesday he will not seek a fourth term next year. "It's the right thing to do," he told The Associated Press during an interview in his state Capitol office. He formally announced his intentions later at a news conference.

We've done a lot together, and yet there is always more to do," he said. "But there is one thing I've understood from my very first day in public office: That as elected officials we are only temporary stewards of the people's trust."

When asked about a possible presidential run, Pataki, 60, said "That's for down the road. I'm not ruling anything in or out, but my goal is to be the best governor I can be for the next year and a half."
He's too much of a R.I.N.O. for me, not to mention he lacks an air of command.
