At first, actress Susan Sarandon expected to back Council Speaker Christine Quinn in her bid to become the city’s first female mayor. But she had to evaluate her other priorities as well.

“As a woman, initially I was interested in Quinn,” Ms. Sarandon declared tonight at a fund-raiser at the swanky SPiN Galactic New York ping pong club. “It became clear to me that, you know as a woman, you can’t just vote your vagina.”
