I just read an article on New York Post website and please help me solve this sentence:
Battling corruption charges and staring down certain impeachment, Gov. Rod Blagojevich did a better job of picking a US senator than did David Paterson.
How about 'David Paterson did'?
Which is more proper?
Inversion is used to give it more emphasis. It's more common in written English that in spoken.
