Here’s something that will no doubt not sit well with Mayor Bloomberg, who already has taken issue with former Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s plan to take his Sheriff of Wall Street act to the NYC comptroller’s office.

During an interview with Larry King that will air tonight on RT America, Spitzer said he has “no regrets” about his targeting of the financial industry during his state attorney general days, save one: He wishes he had been even more aggressive that he was in taking bad actors to task.

“I wish in some contexts that we’d been harder – not on the people, but on structurally,” Spitzer told King. “Here’s what I mean by that: Between 2000 and 2006 when I was elected governor, we made a lot of what you refer to as the Wall Street cases. Did a lot of other stuff, but put that aside. The effort was to reform a capital structure that we saw taking us to disaster.”

“We began doing subprime lending cases in 1999. We did the analyst cases, which went to the very hear of how our investment banks were structured. Then the insurance cases. The mutual fund cases. What I said to the people in the industry was, ‘Look, guys, these are not isolated dots. You see the entire system, you see a system that is overleveraged, too much risk. You are taking advantage of a deregulatory system that will creat a crisis.”

“So, when I say I wish I’d been harder, I wish I’d been harder and more affirmative in saying: Guys, there’s a crisis brewing.”

Also during the interview, which will air at 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. and then will be available online at and Hulu, Spitzer again dodges the “do you have a girlfriend” question, saying he’s done talking about his personal life.

And, in a bit of a dig at Gov. Andrew Cuomo, with whom Spitzer has never really seen eye-to-eye, the former governor says Hillary Clinton is a lock for the Democratic nomination in 2016, but isn’t necessarily a sure thing to win it all in the general election.

For what it’s worth, Spitzer and Bloomberg are again disagreeing – this time over the mayor’s warning that NYC could very well go the way of Detroit if his successor fails to control the city’s rapidly rising health care and pension costs.
