A Prominent Republican is joining a prominent Democrat in predicting that Gov. Cuomo will become President Obama's running mate for vice president next year.
Former New York GOP boss William Powers, credited with playing a key role in electing Rudy Giuliani mayor and George Pataki governor, was effusive in his praise of Cuomo's successes in the just-ended legislative session, and in his prediction of the freshman governor's political future. "Andrew had a fabulous session. It was fabulous. A property-tax cap, ethics reform and, for Democrats, gay marriage," said Powers. "I don't think there's any doubt Obama is going to pick him as his running mate. The president is in trouble and [Vice President Joseph] Biden doesn't bring anything to his ticket.
Biden didn't bring anything last time - except 6 years over John McCain's tenure in the Senate. Really, how much Change is that? And only now is there a lot of talk about dumping Joe?
And my first response to the headline was - Mario Cuomo, of course... not his butthead kid who inherited the NY Gov chair. Oh, really, you want the butthead?
I swear that Andrew would have been a fantastic addition to the WWE had he not been in line to take over his daddy's business in the oligarchy.
