Illegal aliens are criminals by definition and therefore shouldn't be issued driver's licenses!
Governor Spitzer's support for his driver's license proposal is in reverse and his allies (Mayor Bloomberg and ex-Mayor Koch) have told him so, while Senators Hillary Clinton and Charles Schumer are "deafen-itely" silent, and unsupporting.
Governor Spitzer has to cut away those puppet strings that his advisors are controlling him with, and if he doesn't, his political career will continually go down the drain and he will historically be associated with that term, oxymoron.
The federal "real ID law" enacted in 2005 that will require a social security number for all driver's licenses by December 2009, is the right way to go.
Governor Spitzer has to admit his mistake, reconsider his decision, and move on to be the Governor that the people of New York voted for.
