    is an intellectual heavyweight on the subject of education.  Cuomo is wholly devoted to the charter schools business, and it is a business.  He made that clear when he spoke to Eva Moskowitz's little rally against De Blasio's efforts to deprive her of SOME of what Bloomberg had handed over to her. Ravitch could hold her own on that subject, and is smart enough to develop a couple of other campaign planks and defend them well.

    Zephyr Teachout would be a laughable choice--no experience as a candidate, no name recognition, and a name that will be mocked when it is recognized. Plus association with Dean, who I admire greatly, but a lot of people think is a liberal crazy person.
