Governor David Paterson may go down as having the strangest governorship in New York state history, if not American history.

Stepping into office in the wake of Eliot Spitzer's atom bomb-sized scandal and departure, Paterson has been faced with a multitude of tough challenges.

Everything from a bankrupt state, a failed gay marriage vote, and revelations of his own personal infidelities have made Paterson's term as odd as it gets.

Take a look at a brief overview of Paterson's highlights and lowlights.
