On Fred Dicker's show Gov. Cuomo said he didn't want to talk about Presidential politics in 2016. Naturally Gov. Cuomo wants to think that 2016 is a long way off and he really doesn't want to talk about the 2016 race just now. The fact that Hillary Clinton will likely run leaves him out in the cold in any case. She's simply unbeatable. He's surrounded by political assassins from the right and left, who now smell the Albany ‘Caesar’s’ blood and are daily developing ways to curtail what was recently an unlimited future. The Gov. has made a disastrous decision to back a Coalition government in the Senate, for short term political advantage in pushing his legislative agenda. He didn't have to make this deal, a Democratic Majority would have sufficed, and he would still be seen as a Democratic Governor with impeccable credentials.
Instead Gov. Cuomo has put himself into the middle of the polar opposite political forces in the Senate, the Republican Conservatives’ and Mike Long on one side, and Liberals on the other side of the center he needs to inhabit politically speaking. The wild card here is how offended are the Majority of Democratic Senators who feel his disloyalty has smeared their ability to govern. The Gov.'s attacks on the Press and anyone and everyone who speaks against the 'Coalition solution in the Senate he pushed are now perceived enemies.
Erosion of support from the right and left will be a natural consequence of Senate members deciding where their future Political interests lie. And for Conservative types, Mike Long has sent a clear message, get off the Cuomo bandwagon or face ruin two years from now. Al Sharpton has been vocal about campaigning against IDC member’s now and next election. You get the idea; a lot of Senators now have a lot on the line in the name of 'Coalition' government in NYS. Nationally speaking no one has more on the line than Andrew ‘Caesar’ Cuomo, who is now perceived as damaged goods in any talks about the 2016 Presidential Election. Why would he want to talk about the Presidential run in 2016 to Fred Dicker, he believes silence serves him well, and maybe it does. The Voters of NYS will remain vocal however as Gov. Cuomo's betrayal sinks in concerning 'Coalition' government.
