Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

NY Politics

I don't really follow it, but Cuomo has basically governed to the right of George Pataki, until the Working Families Party threatened to run against him.  Then he made some concessions to the Left.

In a state like NY, where it's unlikely that a GOP candidate can win the governorship, it's helpful to have that level of accountability. In CT, Malloy might not survive a split with the WFP, which is fine, because I think he's been the best governor we've had in my 14 years in the state.
