Spitzer vs. Grasso for Mayor?

"Eliot Spitzer's resurrection -- from the disgraced governor better known as Client 9 to CNN talk-show host -- has the political class buzzing about him running for mayor in 2013," the Charlie Gasparino reports.

"The idea is that Spitzer, the son of a near-billionaire real-estate magnate, would run as as a self-financed independent, a la Mike Bloomberg. But he's got baggage that Bloomberg, for all his crass temperament, didn't have in 2001 -- starting with his record in state politics."

Adding to the intrigue: Former New York Stock Exchange chief Dick Grasso -- one of Spitzer's highest-profile targets on Wall Street -- "has quietly been telling friends that he's leaning toward challenging Spitzer as a Republican."

With Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) as the Democratic candidate, this could be the best political race ever.
