Should Paterson Resign?

Even though the Guv has only nine months in office left and isn't running again, this whole nasty scandal with him apparently trying to squash an investigation into his driver (plus some other stuff) has left an already politically weakened governor politically dead.

With no credibility and no support left, he basically can't govern. But if he quits, will a Governor Ravitch be able to lead the state effectively, considering that either Andrew Cuomo or Rick Lazio will be taking over as Governor on January 1st? (Now there's a depressing scenario.)

There's no good option for Paterson, just a least worst one. And I have no idea what that is. What do you think? Should he stay or should he go -- now?
