His last public appearance in a news venue (so far) showed his worst side, but Fast Eddie saved the city of Philadelphia and was good for the state:

He leaves Harrisburg with a legacy of having made real change and having, on balance, a positive impact on the state. Our schools are better today; our roads and infrastructure are better today, our economic climate is better today because of him.

He is going to end up a Talking Head/Contributor on MSNBC or a Talking Head/Foil on Fox News. That’s the way it goes; everybody sells out for the Big Bucks in the end.
