  •  Clearly, he's running for the VP slot (7+ / 0-)

    For Hillary's Democorporate Party. You say "no" because they are pols from the same state, so there's no additional voters to be gained? That was so 2000. Today, a ZVP might be more valued for the corporate vote he can bring in. Hillary has Wal-Mart, Goldman Sachs and the MIC companies votes; maybe Cuomo delivers the charter schools and private prison companies. That's a winning ticket for sure!

    •  No. We say no because they are from the same state (6+ / 0-)

      And in a close election we could wind up with a Democratic President and a Tea Party Vice President since the electors from New York couldn't vote for both of them.

    •  Well, you can trash Hillary (8+ / 0-)

      cuz that works here but when it comes to public education, Hillary was with public ed teachers much more so than President Obama ever was.  He basically gave education over to charter loving Arne Duncan.

      So I am going to say Hillary has been to the left of Obama when it comes to public ed.

    •  The constitution takes care of that (4+ / 0-)

      Both candidates can't be from the same state. It's why Cheney "moved" to Wyoming in 2000 even though he lived in Texas.

        the Constitution is useless on that and so many other matters. Power loves to invent loopholes and exception.

      •  Yes, it has been as horrid to watch (0+ / 0-)

        as the cultist takeover the GOP.

        But both have been taken over by Big Inc.

        The irony being that progressives have never had a better time to win back independents and the sane center since the other party is, arguably, literally crazy. Instead, the corporations seize the Democratic Party and pull it rightward too.

        For the GOP, Inc. leveraged crazy (religion and race).
        For the Democratic Party, Inc. just dangled the dollars.
