Sometimes you are judged by who your enemies and for the state's next governor, that may be a good thing.....Michael Goodwin in the Post points out that for Andrew Cuomo its not a bad thing to have David Paterson and Eliot Spitzer taking shots at you.....These two are the largely discredited team to whom we gave a 70% mandate in 2006......Meanwhile Mr. Cuomo continues to delay his official announcement of candidacy in part because it's nice in the Rose Garden this time of year....and the Attorney General is busy chasing down corruption in Albany and doesn't want to politicize his pursuit of Espada and company any more.
My only hope is that Mr. Cuomo, this year's AG riding a white horse of reform, is better than the last such character who ended up in the Mayflower with Ashley.
I am inclined to think he will be if only because his families political past surely has taught him something and his father is good counsel on such matters.
The problems seem unsolveable by a simple election, but that is the only remedy we have as citizens. We can only hope Mr. Cuomo and his GOP opponents really are offering something different.
