Governor Cuomo, with his penetrating stare and in-your-face speaking cadence is proving he can bend the Legislature to his will and the quick passage of a gun control bill may signal another good year for the Governor in Albany.
The Governor says progressive New York led the nation on the issue. That's true, as President Obama surrounds himself with children today for his stop-the-violence legislative package.
The Governor should be able to pass the rest of his agenda in Albany this year as the Legislature is mostly of his party and frankly few want to stand up to the forceful governor who when it comes to politics, definately keeps score.
