This Governor is going to be sunk on his obnoxious character traits over time, because they seem to portray this about his inner life to me. He tends to think you can sell the public anything, if you package it with slick enough wrapping paper. Mr. Cuomo likes to see himself as a champion of the disempowered, but paradoxically has now disempowered the Democratic electorate he supposedly represented. Our Governor likes to be portrayed as a nice fellow, but his body language over time screams, "back off I'm talking now" and sooner or later that's going to cost him.
His actions on the 'Coalition' arrangement in the Senate seem to reflect that he quietly backed it, and thought he wanted it, but now worries about being stuck with it if it doesn't work. He's unconcerned that he disappointed voters in what I feel is a morally despicable way, but is very concerned that the feeling of betrayal by Democratic voters might become wide spread. If you report the truth about this little gambit he has waged, to power share in the Senate as long as all stake holders in the deal know, they're in fact reporting to him you're probably not getting invited to this year’s Christmas Party and that will really sting.
I see us entering a dark period with this Governor where his lack of respect for voters comes into clearer view and I fully expect he's capable of creating an enemies list in Albany, NY as preparation for national office and his entry into the Republican Party. Family history aside this Governor is a Republican at heart and I don't mind saying so even if he wants to put a little guy on his enemies list (or as Rick said in Casablanca) his role of honor, I think in 2016 he'll run as a Republican. The Republican Party is going to be looking for a Centrist and by that time he'll bolt, because he'll have completely burnt his bridges with mainstream Democrats after pulling this 'Coalition' stunt and no doubt more will follow over time.
