Did Cuomo just say that PENTIUM processors are the latest?

Can your guests tell me where Cuomo stands on restoring education $ to NYC? I've got two children in the public school system and I've called the campaign three times and no one has an answer. I assume its a no go with him. I really don't understand why any democrat would vote for him.

If Cuomo can not find common ground with the unions, why would any democrat want to vote for him? We have to learn to stop killing our own and become a NEW force for change that can have a meaningful effect.

Very true, Brian.

If he refuses the Working Families Party ballot line and he is not endorsed by the big unions...THAT would be impressive...and he could then gain credibility as a force for real change in state government.

Andrew Cuomo promises to "take our government back". What a joke! From whom? Well, actually.... from Andrew Cuomo who, while at HUD and in his later political career, has been a willing patron of the public unions and reckless activists who pushed us all into this unaffordable trainwreck in the first place. We're broke.... and Cuomo won't risk his advancement to the next level by actually doing anything to anger his base. Sorry, these words are all a charade.

For years we endured Governor Mario Cuomo, a pro-choice Catholic, the lowest form of political life. Now there is Andrew Cuomo, his son, who has wanted to be governor for many years, a pro-choice and pro-same sex marriage Catholic. I thought the nightmare of the Cuomos was over.
