Note: The quote is excerpted from New York Time.Lately, with New York awash in sex scandals, I’ve been thinking that this stuff is not as much fun as it used to be. After a while, you’d really rather get back to discussing highway construction.
Sure, the Eliot Spitzer thing had its moments. But Spitzer had hardly gotten out the door when his successor, David Paterson, was confessing adultery to the New York Daily News columnist Juan Gonzalez. The swearing-in party was still going while Paterson was coming clean.
1. hardly get out the door= ? Hasn't Spitzer stepped down from his office already? I think Spitzer has gotten out of the door. Why did the author use " hardly"? The door was referred to his office, wasn't it?
2. Is "the swearing-in party" referred to the new successor -Paterson? What is the author referred to about " was still going"?:roll:
Thanks in advance.
