There are two major impediments to Paladino's electoral ambitions. First, he's screwed over a lot of the people who worked on his gubernatorial campaign. And second, his major accomplishment as a candidate has been to remind people that he's a huge, huge jerk.
For the record, I was never contacted directly by anyone with the Working Families Party about running for Governor of New York. But my passion for politics is as important to me as it's ever been. New York needs strong leadership.
