Andrew Cuomo will ask local officials who want his blessing in their races to sign a pledge to support Mr. Cuomo's list of issues and agenda. He must think his popularity is so pervasive that everyone will sign on.
Mr. Cuomo has not even announced his candidacy for Governor, but is widely thought to have a lock on the job and the campaign is a perfunctory exercise.
I will have to take a look at the pledge Mr. Cuomo wants me and others to sign. It says in the Daily News if you don't sign, you won't get the Governor's help in your own electoral endeavors.
I will be pleased to see the new Governor pursuing a reform agenda, but I will pass on signing anybody's pledge....
Remember when Rick Lazio tried to get Hillary to sign that pledge during a televised debate in Buffalo...That went over well.
