If he wins it will be "Andy Feels Dandy"...and if he has a dalliance it will be "Randy Andy".
Even though the candidate prefers Andrew, a Governor Cuomo will be known by whatever the headline writers prefer.
President Richard Nixon had to defer to 'Dick' once the Checkers affair branded him "Tricky". Calvin Coolidge must have preferred 'Cal' as 'Calvin' sounds so prissy...Although it's an OK name for a fashion designer.
What does it say about people who insist on being called 'Robert' instead of 'Bob' or 'James' instead of 'Jim' ?
We can all answer that because there is just a different feel to those who insist on the less colloquial. (Andy of Mayberry ?)
Just can't put my finger on it.
I just know I'd rather go have a beer with someone named Andy as opposed to an Andrew....But as for which one I prefer to fix Albany....I'm still thinking about that one.
