    I've heard enough about Cory saving animals, small children and old ladies from imminent death and then tweeting his heroism out there...really don't want to see his Twitter.

    All I'll say is, for someone that made so much of how he was going to "save Newark" he was damn quick to use it as a stepping stone and get the heck out of there.  And aside from convincing a few businesses to relocate there, his efforts have had no meaningful effect on actual conditions.  Check out crime or unemployment rates, which are dismal.  

    As for Cuomo, like Booker he performs well the classic Clinton/Obama-era Democratic party jiujitsu.  Be as progressive as you like with language of racial inclusion and civil rights for LBGT people.  Which of course is cool.  But stay on the damn take with Wall Street and dare the corporate media to say boo about it.  

    It's OK, Dems can just forever say high-minded things about racial inclusion and LBGT acceptance without ever touching the third rail of actual economic issues.  Class warriors they are not.

      Booker was at least a vaguely competent mayor.

      Cuomo has done nothing good.  (Marriage equality was gonna pass with or without him; the votes were there.)
