Which was the most fevered lunge for self-promotion?
1. Former Nassau Executive Thomas Suozzi, absent from his successor’s swearing-in, sending out an e-mail midway through the ceremony proclaiming his own accomplishments.
2. New York City Schools Chancellor Joel Klein saying his New Year’s resolution is to “stay focused on the children.”
3. Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) balking at the nomination of Erroll Southers to head the Transportation Security Admnistration, saying “we need to make the point” that the administration is “more about politics than security.”
