I remember those days, when we were all fired up and inspired by Mario Cuomo’s 1984 speech, and we all thought he ought to run for president. Here’s that speech:
Wonderful, isn’t it? Still true. Truer than ever. We need a president, and a congress, and a Supreme Court driven by that vision. And there seemed to be quite a few election cycles where many of us hoped that Cuomo would step forward and lead by that ideal.
He kept turning us down. And now he’s given us a final rebuff.
