ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer talked about politics during his first public appearance in New York's capital since a prostitution scandal forced him from office in 2008.

Spitzer told a public radio fundraiser Sunday that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton should run for president in 2016.

Spitzer praised Gov. Andrew Cuomo for pushing to legalize same-sex marriage last year. But he panned the governor's handling of legislative redistricting.

The Times-Union of Albany (http://bit.ly/UqXC4v ) reports that Spitzer did not rule out another run for office for himself. But he said it's not something he thinks about when he wakes up in the morning.
