Polls show New Yorkers are optimistic about the upcoming Cuomo administration and why not ? I know all the fears about "status Cuomo" and the WFP's grip on the Democratic Party. But the reason for being optmistic and supportive is that the election is over, the choice was made and even if you are still a grumbling mad-as-Hell person, there is no alternative to hoping the new governor achieves some success.
Voters say they want the Governor to focus on the job he has and not be looking ahead to national ambitions. That's good advice and I have found that true on the local level. Politics lends itself to looking ahead to the next level. People still ask me 'what's next ?" The answer is I have a great job and work to do....I am more than happy to attend political events and will give advice and help to those who ask, but as for ambitions...Mine is to do a good job at what I am doing....
The new Governor should do the same, although just like his counterpart in neighboring NJ, our new governor will spend a lot of time answering questions about 2012 and 2016. He should just ignore them.
