    I am not a Bernie guy, but doesn't the current crisis make his platform more appealing than prior to the outbreak? Universal health care, living wage, anti-corporate welfare, etc.? It seems like these things that would have been only labeled as "socialist" this fall can now be turned to how they could have helped us in the pandemic. The argument against his ideas can't just be written off as pinko-Commie anymore. They'd have to be taken seriously.

    You can take his platform seriously without taking Bernie seriously.

    I wonder if there are some skeletons in Cuomo's closet...Why haven't we ever heard his name floated? He's 62 years old - he has the look, has the name, clearly has the gravitas, former cabinet member, etc. Seems like he at least would have explored a bid by now. Maybe he did and I missed it.

    Probably just family tradition. His dad was always considered a frontrunner for the nomination but wouldn't run.

    Cuomo is loathed by the left wing of the Democratic Party, and much of the I'm-in-charge attitude that seems so attractive in a crisis makes it impossible for him to work with others in more normal times.

    Yeah, really. Why would Canadians come here and get price-gouged for health care?

    That is a different matter. If he passes the threshold, he is the nominee. If not, it is absolutely fine within the rules if the Democrats choose another candidate.

    You gotta figure with soaring unemployment, a crashing economy, and an overburdened healthcare system, Trump has to be the odds-on favorite in November no matter who he faces.

    He may have issues with the far left, but it's not like he has been ineffective as governor of New York. Being unable to work with others is a much larger concern with Sanders than it is with Cuomo.

    I think he is going to run, but in 2024.
