Questions from Niagara Falls

May 2, 2010

Andrew Cuomo spoke to the Democratic Rural Conference on Friday and received
a solid response, but it was nothing like the euphoric response that greeted
Eliot Spitzer four years earlier at the same event. Why? Was it:

1. After the Spitzer experience, Dems are more cautious about creating
sky-high expectations;
2. There’s growing fatigue with Andrew’s  “Son-of-Hamlet” routine;
3. The DiNapoli contingent, believing their man was undermined by Cuomo,
withheld applause;
4. The Paterson contingent (see above…ditto…);
5. Or maybe it was Cuomo’s stylishly-delivered, but incredibly awkward
remarks: To a roomful of Democrats, he said that New York State government
(controlled entirely by Democrats) is more “corrupt, dysfunctional and
incompetent” than at any time in history. Applause?!
6. All of the above.
