New York, May 17 (ANI): U.S. President Barack Obama and New York Governor David Alexander Paterson seem to be having a cold war of their own these days.

Some time back, Obama made it clear that he felt Paterson should forget about running for a full term.

So when Obama was speaking Thursday night in Midtown, Paterson was a block away at the Barneys Penthouse at a party hosted by Olympic fencers Tim Morehouse and Jason Rogers and Vault.com co-founder Sam Hamadeh to benefit UN sports programs for kids in war-torn areas - all was obviously not well.

According to the New York Post, when one guest asked why he wasn't at Obama's speech, a smiling Paterson was overheard saying, "Who?"

A Paterson spokesman, however, said, "There was no snub." (ANI)
