The Wall Street Journal's Daniel Henninger pens a love note to New York's Republican candidate for comptroller, Harry Wilson. Mr. Henninger calls it "the most important 2010 election you've never heard of." If you've been reading FutureOfCapitalism, you have heard of it: We interviewed Mr. Wilson back in March and wrote about it here.
I plan to vote for Mr. Wilson in November; I like him and think he's about a mile ahead of your typical New York political candidate. But I was disappointed that he showed up at Steve Rattner's book party. I understand the concept of being a loyal friend, but if Mr. Wilson is running to take over the New York state pension fund, showing up at a party to celebrate the figure who is now a symbol of the corruption of that fund doesn't exactly inspire confidence. Mr. Henninger's column, which is a fine one, would have been stronger, I think, had it gotten into that issue a bit.
