This BusinessWeek writer notes the irony of the governor of New York establishing a commission to find ways to make doing business on Wall Street easier. It was the governor's high-handed and populist demonizing of business that created much of the problem in the first place when he was attorney general. Admittedly, he stopped bad practices but the way he went about his work was high in publicity value and sometimes, low in law. He was a media darling, but he is learning in his present job that the media can turn against one too.
