  •  Even if gun control makes Cuomo & O'Malley (1+ / 0-)

    out of the race in 2016 (and I certainly don't think it will, particularly in the primary, and gun control is almost certainly not going to be the #1 issue people are deciding on in the general), it would make them good VP choices to shore up the left flank, particularly O'Malley. O'Malley may be willing to settle for second fiddle in 2016, because he's only going to be 53. Even if the ticket lost in 2016 that would move him to the front of the line for 2020.

    •  Picking Cuomo would not shore up the "left flank". (2+ / 0-)

      He is WAY too cozy with Wall Street and he is prepared to throw Upstate NY to the natural gas industry any day now. I'm not saying he'd be a bad VP choice but to me economics and the environment trump social issues by a lot and he is no Progressive when it comes to either of these issues.  

      Let's not let 2014 be anything like 2010. Republicans only win when we stay home!

      •  True, O'Malley would do a lot more for the left (0+ / 0-)

        than Cuomo. Plus if Hillary or Kristen Gillibrand are the nominee, Cuomo would probably not be eligible (unless Hillary used a Little Rock address)
