Open the Asylums!

If somebody can explain politics to me, I'd really like to know why former New York Governor Hugh Carey's endorsement of Eliot Spitzer is being described in the media as "key."

I mean, I 'm likely voting for Spitzer because I like the guy, but I wasn't exactly sitting around on pins and needles waiting to see who Governor Carey was going to support. I highly doubt he's gonna be knocking anyone off the fence. 99% of the state likely couldn't even tell you who he is, and the 1% who could would probably tell you he was a crappy governor.

Is there anyone out there, aside from Mrs. Carey, who actually gives a shit who Hugh Carey is supporting in this race? Please, enlighten me.
