New York Gov. Mario Cuomo spoke to the National Press Club in Washington recently. This is one of the most high-visibility forums for a politician aspiring to move from the local to the national stage. That is especially so when the politician is a member of the party not controlling the White House, and when the speech is delivered a mere 13 months before the New Hampshire presidential preference primary.To an overflow crowd he delivered a speech in which the most memorable moment was when he put tongue between his lips and made a wet, rude noise.

Everyone "knows" it is conservatives who are mean-spirited, intolerant, censors of speech with which they don't agree, anti-gay, anti-black and anti just about everything else, right? We know this because the left keeps telling us so. Which is why in this era of increasingly corrosive language -- note the overuse of the f-word in the film "The Wolf of Wall Street" -- and acidic political discourse, recent comments by Gov. Andrew Cuomo(D-N.Y.), ought to shock and outrage everyone, regardless of party affiliation or ideology.

Chris Cuomo, one of the hosts of "New Day," sounds like someone who has thought a lot about his TV image and what he's getting into as the point man to make mornings matter at CNN. "When I was on the morning show, I had a pretty good amount of success, and I became fairly popular there in the morning," Cuomo says of the job he held as news anchor for ABC's "Good Morning America" from 2006 to 2009. "And I always felt, and what I heard from people, was that the popularity had come from the right reason," he continued.

New York -- MARIO CUOMO warned the nation that he would not run for president unless New York's massive budget crisis was resolved first. Those who thought he was merely playing games found out last week that he meant what he said.That's a welcome change from the usual political double talk and deniability. But there's no use pretending, as some Democrats are doing, that the party's chances for 1992 have not been hurt.Cuomo would have been the most commanding and articulate figure the Democrats could have put up -- and articulateness is one quality, among many, badly needed in the White House.

Albany, N.Y.-- Playing tour guide, Gov. Mario M. Cuomo ducks through an unmarked door in his Capitol study into an executive chamber that must be the grandest in America.Lined with acres of sumptuous Philippine mahogaony and gilded leather, the ceremonial office is a breathtaking throwback to a time when New York truly was the Empire State."Who," Mr. Cuomo asks teasingly amid the splendor, "would want to be anything but governor?"Try Grover Cleveland, Theodore Roosevelt and Franklin D. Roosevelt, for starters.

WASHINGTON -- A dozen years ago in a debate with then-Lt. Gov. Mario Cuomo of New York, Republican gubernatorial nominee Lew Lehrman accused Cuomo of hiring a pollster to determine what issues were popular and then shaping his positions accordingly. Cuomo pounced on him, asking: "Like the death penalty?"It was well known at the time that Cuomo steadfastly opposed imposition of the death penalty in the face of public-opinion polls strongly favoring it. Cuomo narrowly beat Lehrman for the governorship in spite of his unpopular position on capital punishment.

By the time Gov. Martin O'Malley left the Democratic convention last fall, he had schmoozed with party leaders from Iowa, spoken to potential donors and hosted swanky parties that kept delegates entertained into the next morning — efforts that heightened speculation about his ambitions beyond Maryland. But another governor on the short list of potential 2016 presidential candidates, New York's Andrew Cuomo, took an entirely different approach: He arrived in Charlotte two days late, spoke for 20 minutes to his state delegation and went home.

Talk about hitting the floor running, Jeff Zucker looks to have arrived at CNN this month in a flat-out sprint. It's hard not to be impressed by what he's already done: Started to make CNN suddenly seem a couple of decades younger. It's like watching an aggressive and skilled general manager rebuild a baseball team from the bottom up -- first adding younger but already tested major-league talent to the roster while releasing some one-time big names that were no longer productive.

Shortly after the 1988 presidential election, pollsters asked Democrats whom they favored to be their party's nominee in 1992. The strongest candidates were Sen. Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts and Gov. Mario M. Cuomo of New York. The governor of Arkansas, Bill Clinton, didn't even register. Eight years ago, after another election, the pollsters tried again. The front-runners for the 2008 Democratic nomination, they found, were Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and John F. Kerry. The newly elected senator from Illinois, Barack Obama, wasn't on the list.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's coordinated legislative strategy to hold off a vote on homosexual marriage until he could corrupt Republican state Senators James Alesi, Roy McDonald, Stephen Saland, and Mark Grisanti needs further scrutiny by legal authorities. Governor Cuomo and his immoral pals effectively sold New Yorkers down the river by forcing through same-sex marriage, which most New Yorkers and Americans do not want. Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio of Brooklyn recently said the vote was typical of the "corrupt political process in New York state.

Given his role in New York's legalization of same-sex marriage, Andrew Cuomo might be the most celebrated governor in the United States at the moment. But watch out: Martin O'Malley, the governor of Maryland, has taken up his guitar to play with his band again, if only to show us he's not just a boring and cautious, middling politician with presidential ambitions. Here's how reporter John Wagner put it three days ago in The Washington Post: "Instead of seeing his music as a liability, many around him have come to view it as a healthy, humanizing outlet for O'Malley, who, if anything, has grown a little stiff since moving to Annapolis in 2007.

New York -- STOP FUSSING over the speech, Mario. Just announce. Enough already.You can't leave New York to run for president, you say, because the state has a whopping budget deficit? Because then you'd be breaking your compact with the voters who sent you to Albany for a third term? That's the kind of bad reasoning you'd drive a bulldozer through were it uttered by a political opponent. You've said yourself that this state and a lot of other ones are going to have these whopping deficits for as long as the Bushies or their lineal descendants are in power.

Last night, Jon Stewart deftly skewered the idea that Donald Trump's high poll numbers mean that Trump deserves more and more media coverage (even as he says more and more ridiculous stuff). See posts here and here .  Stewart rightly pointed out that Trump and the media have a reciprocal relationship in which the more crazy stuff Trump says the more he gets covered and the higher his poll numbers (and presumably the ratings) go.  "His poll numbers are high mostly because they keep putting him on television to spew the craziest s--- he can think of," Stewart said.  But Stewart's next point was his most salient: He pointed out that Trump's early polls are "completely and totally meaningless.
