Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker had little to say about her former CNN co-host Eliot Spitzer and his new plans to return to public office. "I wish Eliot the best. That’s where I would leave it," she said on MSNBC's Morning Joe Monday.
Parker and Spitzer co-hosted the since-canceled CNN show Parker Spitzer for a brief time. Following several reports of tensions between the two, Parker left the program just four months after its debut in late 2010.
On MSNBC, Parker went on to acknowledge that Spitzer is both "charming" and "complex."
"But as he’s described himself, he can also be a steamroller. He has some powerful enemies in this town," she said.
At the end of the show, during a segment which panelists name one thing they "learned" that morning, Parker said she learned "that there's life after TV. And politics. And TV. And politics."
News broke Sunday that Spitzer, former Democratic governor of New York, is running for New York City's comptroller. Spitzer resigned from the governor's office in 2008 after it was reported he had patronized a prostitute.
