New York is a Blue state until every now and then—a Republican comes along that knows “how to work it.”


I recently highlighted in my first piece: the fact that New York Democrats with this election year (and past ones) have a huge advantage regarding party enrollment alone. In other words —there are many more registered Democrats—than Republicans.

I added: “New York is as true blue as the uniforms of the NY Giants.”

One comment response brought up a very good point:

“If NY was so true blue how do you explain THREE terms of Pataki, two terms of Giuliani and three Bloombergs?”

I thought well that's a valid issue that requires an answer. How did these three republicans win in New York and then have the nerve to pull off re-election.

For Andrew Cuomo and the Democrats–the election can’t get here fast enough!!!


Andrew Cuomo is laying low these days, but pretty soon—and you count bet the house on it— the Democratic party faithful will start to rally all around the State Attorney General as the next “great” Governor of State of New York. Hey the White House already weighed in right in front of the current governor David Paterson. 

And let’s be clear about this. I'm a journalist and pride myself on being objective, but It’s very difficult—to see a scenario where the Republicans this year could actually win the Governor’s Mansion.

Number one—New York is true blue. As blue as the uniforms of the New York Giants football team! The Democrats already have the enrollment advantage when it comes party registration over Republicans in this state—and while it may be some intrigue for the media and political insiders—–It’s not good for the republican party to have more than one candidate in a race. These guys may end up killing each other with Cuomo having a front row seat. Ok, enough with being a diplomat, they will.

Normally it’s the Democrats in the circular firing squad—destroying each other but this time the honor belongs to the state GOP.
