      If anyone remembers anything about Mario Cuomo's governorship, it is that he could have done so much, but really didn't rock the boat.  Andrew Cuomo came into office and did a lot in a short time, but isn't doing much lately.  Perhaps he thought that a judge could get him a better deal for the Dems, but, I doubt that is the reason.  If he wants to run for national office, he has to get through the primaries, and O'Malley and Schweitzer are more willing to push the envelope.  

      Whoever wins in 2016, (hopefully a Dem), they are going to want a Dem controlled US house, and now is the time to maximize seats.  In New York State, it wouldn't be too difficult to get almost all Dem seats, with just 2 or 3 GOP sinks.  But, this doesn't happen if we don't push hard for it.  I agree, Spitzer would never let this go to a judge.
