Whispers in Albany

So -- following news reports that the White House has been encouraging New York Gov. David Paterson to not run in next year's gubernatorial race -- what did President Obama whisper to Paterson on the tarmac in Albany?

A knowledgable source says the president expressed his regret at how the story leaked and became such a media spectacle.

(Not that said regret changes the governor's 76 percent disapproval ratings, or the president's view that Paterson can't win and should cede the floor to someone who can for the good of the state and the party.)
