    except that kos hates him, and I suspect that's not all earned.

    But I also think, generically, that the northeast is not the place to run from.  It's a bunch of states already guaranteed democratic.  That would be Warren's problem, too.  

    The dossier on my DKos activities during the Bush administration will be presented on February 3, 2014, with an appendix consisting an adjudication, dated "a long time ago", that I am Wrong.

      All of it.

       Cuomo's affection for Wall St. makes Clinton look like Trotsky by comparison. Plus, his governing style consists of handing the State Senate, which the Democrats took control of in the last cycle after decades of struggle, back to the Republicans (by getting a few turncoat Dem senators to caucus with the GOP), primarily so that he wouldn't be pushed into signing any legislation that might be too populist for his rich friends.

      He's built his Democratic cred on social issues (marriage equality, gun control) but don't dare get anywhere near taxing the rich. He'll chew you up and spit you out, as he is currently masticating our mayor, Bill DeBlasio.

      I, and most NY progressives only voted for him last time because the alternative was the guy with the baseball bat. We have given up hope that someone will primary him this year, he's got everyone too scared to challenge him. I've heard Democratic elected officials here quietly hope that there will be a third-party candidate in the general.

      BTW, I agree with you about the NE Dem problem. If I had to choose an alternative nominee, it would be Schweitzer. Too bad he's out of office.

      "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."........ "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." (yeah, same guy.)
